THE ROYAL MILITARY COLLEGE 



THERE are few national institutions of more value and interest to the 
country than the Royal Military College at Kingston. At the same 
time, its object and the work it is accomplishing are not sufficiently under- 
stood by the general public. 

' The College is a Government institution, designed primarily for the pur- 
pose of giving the highest technical instructions in all branches of military 
science to Cadets and Officers of Canadian Militia. In fact, it is intended to 
take the place in Canada of the English Woolwich and Sandhurst and the 
American West Point. 

The Commandant and Military Instructors are all officers on the active 
list of the Imperial army, lent for the purpose, and in addition there is a 
complete staff of Professors for the civil subjects, which form such a large 
proportion of the College course. 

Whilst the College is organized on a strictly military basis the Cadets 
receive, in addition to their military studies, a thoroughly practical, scientific 
and sound training in all subjects that are essential to a high and general 
modern education. 

The course in Mathematics is very complete, and a thorough grounding 
is given in the subjects of Civil Engineering, Civil and Hydrographic Sur- 
veying, Physics, Chemistry, French and English. 

The object of the College course is thus to give the Cadets a training 
which shall thoroughly equip them for either a military or civil career. 

The strict discipline maintained at the College is one of the most valuable 
features of the system. As a result of it young men acquire habits of 
obedience and self-control, and consequently of self-reliance and command, 
as well as experience in controlling and handling their fellows. 

In addition, the constant practice of gymnastics, drills and outdoor exer- 
cises of all kinds, ensures good health and fine physical condition. 

An experienced Medical Officer is in attendance at the College daily. 

Five Commissions in the Imperial regular army are annually awarded 
as prizes to the Cadets. 

The length of course is three years, in three terms of 9^ months' 
residence each. 

The total cost of the three years' course, including board, uniforms, 
instructional material and all extras, is from $750 to $800. 

The annual competitive examination for admission to the College will 
take place at the Headquarters of the several military districts in which 
candidates reside, in May of each year. 

For full particulars of this examination, or for any other information, 
application should be made as soon as possible to the Adjutant-General 
of Militia, Ottawa, Out.

INTRODUCTION 



After four years of almost uninterrupted labour, mainly of 
research, I have the satisfaction of placing this first volume of the 
" Types of Canadian Women " before the public. My satisfaction 
is blended with sincere gratitude for the patriotic sympathy and 
generous help to which such measure of success as I have attained 
has been largely due. From the first announcement of my pur- 
pose, suggestions, reminders, references flowed in upon me from 
near and far. I was thus often brought within reach of information 
that would otherwise have remained hidden from me. I shall have 
an opportunity by and by of expressing my thanks more fully to 
the most cordial and effective of such coadjutors. Meanwhile, 
they cannot be better represented than by the names of Lord 
Strathcona, the Honourable Mr. Justice Baby, the Hon. Mr. 
Justice Girouard, Sir Sandford Fleming, the Hon. Senator Gowan, 
C.M.G., and Mr. John Reade, whose good-will, expressed in so 
many ways, I justly and gladly acknowledge. 

I am also thankful in another and larger sense. Arduous 
though the research (which involved the writing of thousands of 
letters) has necessarily been, I never for a moment had reason to 
rue my undertaking. If it sometimes caused weariness of the 
flesh, the languor was dispelled by refreshings of the patriotic 
heart as ever new surprises disclosed the wealth of the mine which 
it was my happy lot to have opened to the world. That this good 
fortune should have fallen to me was doubtless due to the fact that 
I had been so long engaged in biographic investigation. For 
almost half a century I had been eagerly watching the careers, at 
home and abroad, of the more distinguished of my fellow-country- 
men. In such a pursuit I could not fail to be attracted to the rare 
deserts of many Canadian women. These have due places assigned 
to them in previous publications of mine. It was, however, only 
within recent years that I contemplated (vaguely at first) the 
making of such a book as this a book in which the " predominant 



vi INTRODUCTION 

partner " has only a casual share. Once the idea had taken pos- 
session of my mind, I felt like the convert from whose eyes the 
scales had fallen. 

If, however, I had been blind so long to the claims of women, 
I was not alone. Indeed, my "Types" might never have been 
dreamed of had I not been swept unconsciously into the current of 
the age and felt the urgency of one of its most vital movements. 
With what is revolutionary in that movement I have, it is true, no 
sympathy. But the man must be obstinate in his prejudices who 
disdains to acknowledge the need and the good of the reforms in 
female education that have begun to atone for the long injustice of 
the past. Of course, in the woman (as in the man) of genius there 
is an innate force that impels her to the attainment of what is 
essential for the fulfilment of Her destiny. Strong desire seems 
not only to suggest a forecast but to create the path to its goal. 
It must at the same time be conceded that, even for women of 
the privileged classes, the road for intellectual advancement was, 
until quite recently, so uphill and arduous as to be practically 
prohibitive. 

About a century and a half before the accession of Queen 
Victoria, Daniel De Foe wrote an essay on the Education of 
Women, which, read to-day, shows what a start he had of his 1 
generation. " I cannot think," he writes, "that God Almighty ever 
made women so delicate, so glorious creatures, and furnished them 
with such charms, so agreeable and so delightful to mankind, with 

o o 

souls capable of the same accomplishments with men, and all to be 
stewards and cooks and slaves." After further deploring a state of 
things which dooms women to ignorance and frivolity, he expressesi 
though rather vaguely, a hope for " those happy days (if they ever 
shall be) when men shall be wise enough to reform it." 

The day that De Foe tried to foresee came at last, but it came 
very slowly. When our late venerated Queen ascended the throne, 
there was absolutely no provision accessible to the great middle 
class, or even the class above it, for the higher education of women- 
Repeated attempts had been made but in vain, to overcome the 
prevailing prejudice and lethargy. The note sounded in seeming 
phy by the author of " The Princess " was a signal to advance. 
Soon after its publication the first definite victory of the cause was 
won. The fifty years that followed witnessed an amazing develop- 



INTRODUCTION vii 

ment in the liberation of women from old trammels, educational and 
material. The struggle that went on in the United Kingdom had 
its parallels on the continent of Europe, and in the lands of the 
New World. 

In Canada, where the status of women had always been high, 
the needed changes were brought to pass with less acrimony than 
elsewhere, and were furthered by the chivalrous generosity both of 
our men of learning and our men of wealth. Both the will and the 
way were so happily united in that great Canadian, Lord Strath- 
cona, that his name inevitably occurs to me as I write. The late 
Sir J. W. Dawson, for many years Principal of McGill University, 
is another name deserving' of honourable mention in this particular. 
In this volume and that which is to follow it the reader will have 
ample opportunity of noting the results of those changes, and of 
comparing the generation of the ladies that have profited by them 
with that which preceded it, and its long line of predecessors. 

The "Types" included in this work are mainly of two races, of 
two orders of civilization, two great systems of belief and worship 
They represent three centuries and many marked contrasts of 
fashion and convention. They are of every class, from royalty to 
that of the bourgeoisie, and the ranks of industry. Among them are 
women worthy to bs called saints those Servantes de Dieu en 
Canada (as one writer* happily entitles them), who for the love of 
God and the salvation of souls, the relief of the poor and suffering 
and the help of strained toilers, gave up luxurious homes and the 
attractions of a refined society. Some of them taught the wild 
children of the forest ; others undertook even menial offices, and 
all of them exposed themselves to hazards that made even brave 
men shudder to think of. 

Of another character, though of the same proud stock, were 
those in whose conscious veins throbbed the blood of soldiers, and 
who, in the hour of peril, shrank not from the soldier's peril. To 
all these lady pioneers fell the task of perpetuating in the wilder- 
ness the graces and amenities of polite society, to be models of 
good behaviour, to inculcate a sense of honour and keep alive the 
torch of the household virtues. When the old order changed, the 
old manners and morals, thanks to these good ladies and those 
who walked in their footsteps, remained with us. Lady pioneers

viii INTRODUCTION 

of the new stock brought with them, indeed, some lofty qualities of 
their own. Some of them had sacrificed much for the sake of 
principle, and then taught their children to be brave and true and 
loyal. Sons of both races, worthy of such mothers, fought shoulder 
to shoulder for their common home against a common foe. They 
went forth thrice-armed, because their quarrel was just, and did 
credit to their gentle teachers. And as our heritage broadened 
out till it touched the ocean on either hand, and new pioneers went 
forth to guard new frontiers and new hearths, they caught and 
handed on the old traditions, so that when not long ago such a 
summons came as had never sounded before, Old Canada and 
New Canada, true to the lessons they had learned at their mothers' 
knees, went forth to fight, or if necessary, to die, for a cause, a 
principle. The women of Canada knew their duty then, and did 
it, each in her own sphere. SoYne went with the volunteers to 
nurse, to teach, to pray. Those who went not in fleshly guise 
went in spirit. For it was the battle of Greater Britain of that 
oversea Empire which their prayers, their lessons, their nursing 
had helped to create. 

While the majority of the ladies in these " Types " may be 
classed as Canadians by birth, to whatever original stock they may 
belong by inheritance, there are others who represent the old lands 
as well as Canada. Some of these are or were the wives of^ 
governors, or other high functionaries, whose names have become 
as household words to all Canadians. Others, born in Canada, 
have become connected by marriage with illustrious British or 
foreign families. Still others, born and married in Canada to 
Canadian husbands, have through the succession or elevation of 
the latter to peerages, or other high positions, gone to live abroad. 
Of women who, by exceptional gifts and labours, have won honour 
in their own and other lands, the number is so large that the writer 
sometimes found the choice of types perplexing. Every sphere 
of beneficent activity may be said to be exemplified in these 
pages. Religion, philanthropy, society, art, letters, science are all I 
illustrated. 

Special reference is due in this connection to the educational 
work of the late Dowager Lady Stanley of Alderley, as set 
forth in the English Journal of Education for April, 1895. Lady 
Stanley, a native of Canada, ever took a warm interest in the land 



INTRODUCTION ix 

of her birth. She was the friend of Dean Stanley, the Rev. 
F. Denison Maurice, Professor Huxley, Dr. and Mrs. Thorne 
and others, well known for their fruitful interest in the higher 
education of women. She was one of the first Vice- Presidents of 
the London School of Medicine for Women, and did much to 
encourage and aid the students of the Royal Art College, the 
Maria Gray Training College, and other institutions of like general 
scope. Her name is cherished to-day wherever in British lands, 
and even beyond them, struggling women seek not in vain the 
stimulus of sympathy and timely help. 

The influence of the Princess Louise on the development of 
Canadian womanhood is not likely to be lost sight of. The 
encouragement which Her Royal Highness graciously extended to 
higher education, and especially to the cultivation of art, deserves 
the grateful remembrance of every Canadian. 

Of Lady Aberdeen's work and example it is needless to more 
than remind the Canadian reader. The results of her initiative 
and unceasing effort for the elevation of her sisters while, with her 
distinguished husband, she occupied Government House, Ottawa, 
have been most salutary and far-reaching. Her influence amongst 
us is still active and pervading, for since her return to Great Britain 
Her Ladyship has maintained happy relations with the organiza- 
tions that she founded in Canada. How deep and sincere is the 
Countess's interest in all that concerns the moral and intellectual 
life of our women was admirably illustrated not long since by a 
paper which she read before the Colonial section of the Society of 
Arts, London. On that occasion Lady Aberdeen took for her 
subject, " Women in Canada." The paper, which gave an account 
of the noble and gifted essayist's experience during her residence 
in Canada, and especially of her association with the organized 
work of Canadian women workers, was as commendable for its 
spirit as it was valuable for its facts. 

In expressing a hope thit my earnest investigations, which have 
at least yielded a harvest from which both historian and private 
student may find what they seek elsewhere in vain, may to others 
be as beneficial as to me (in spite of drawbacks) they have been 
pleasant, I trust it may not be presumptuous in me to make a 
suggestion to those high in authority. It seems to me (and I am 
.'ure to others) that the time has come when some fitting decor- 



INTRODUCTION 

ation should be instituted by which the worth of th2 women of 
England's Colonial Empire might obtain timely recognition at ths 
Fountain of Honour. To the men. of the Colonies many rewards 
are open. Some of them have won Imperial honours which the 
old lands envy them. Many more have received the acknowledg- 
ment especially designed for the higher services of Colonists. The 
author would be proud, indeed, and happy, if, by the accept- 
ance of his suggestion, his book should be associated with the 
honouring, not of his fellow country-women only, but of all the 
higher types of women in all the Colonies.

Duchess of Saxony, is the fourth daughtei of Her late Majesty Queen Victoria. 
Born March, 1848, she married, March 2ist, 1871, the Marquis of Lome (now 
9th Duke of Argyll), P.C., K.T., G.C.M.G., whom she accompanied to Canada 
on his appointment as Governor-General, October I4th, 1878. A painter and 
a sculptor, Her Royal Highness was the means of having established, while in 
Canada, the Royal Canadian Academy of Art. One of her works as a sculptor 
is the fine statue of her Royal mother erected in front of the Royal Victoria 
College, Montreal. Besides being a member of various orders and societies in 
the Old World, she is, in Canada, the patroness of the Ladies' Educational 
Association, of the_3Y Oman's Protective Immigration Society, of the Society of 
Decorative Art^~ancT~of the Art Association, all of Montreal. Her Royal 
Highness holds that "the subject of Domestic Economy lies at the root of the - 
highest life of every true woman." She has never ceased, from her earliest > 
years, to take the warmest interest in the progress and welfare of the Dominion, 
and only recently gave expression to the pride she felt in having once lived 
among the Canadian people. Residences : Kensington Palace, London,

From a photograph by Notman, Montreal. 

Isabella Sophia, Baroness Strathcona and Mount Royal, is the daughter of 
the late Richard Hardisty, Esquire, of the Hudson's Bay Company. She married, 
early in life, Hon. Donald A. Smith, Governor of the same corporation, who, 
for his public services, was created a K.C.M.G. in 1886, a G.C.M.G. in 1896, 
and was raised to the peerage in 1897, with a fresh patent in 1900, with special 
remainder in default of male issue to their only daughter, Hon. Margaret 
Charlotte Howard, wife of Robert J. B. Howard, Esquire, and her heirs male. 
A woman of a retiring and unambitious nature, Lady Strathcona has yet ably 
seconded her illustrious husband in his many acts and schemes for the benefit 
of his fellowmen, and has herself subscribed liberally on many occasions. 
Quite recently she, in conjunction with her daughter, gave $100,000 to McGill 
University, for the erection of a new wing to its Medical Building. Throughout 
she has exercised a large and gracious hospitality, and, in Canada, is especially 
esteemed and loved. No more popular hostess could be found for Rideau 
Hall in the event of a Canadian being selected for the Governor-Generalship. 
Her Ladyship was presented to the King and Queen, March I3th, 1903. 
Residences : jj Cadogan Square, London ; Knebworth House, Stevenage, 
Herts, England; Glencoe, Scotland; //57 Dorchester Street, Montreal.

President of the International Council of Women, 1893-99. While in Canada 
she founded the National Council of Women of Canada, and the Victorian 
Order of Nurses, which bodies still exist. She has been well described as 
"a noble woman, possessing rare executive ability, great capacity for work, 
and the broadest sympathies." On leaving Canada, in 1898, Sir Wilfrid 
Laurier gave expression to the regret everywhere felt over the departure of 
Lord and Lady Aberdeen, whose good works had left a deep and permanent 
impression on the hearts of the Canadian people. Residences : jS Grosi'enor

with her family to Toronto, where she received her education at the Bishop 
Strachan School, her brothers being educated at Trinity College School, Port 
Hope. In 1882, when fifteen, she made her professional debut at the Madison 
Square Theatre, New York, in " Esmeralda," became leading lady for John 
McCullough, in 1883, and subsequently played classical Shakesperian and 
comedy roles with Salvini, Lawrence IJarrett, Joseph Jefferson and \V. J. 
Florence. Her career as a "star" dates from 1898, at which time she created 
the character of Gloria Quayle in "The Christian." Her chief successes have 
been in this character and in Virginia, Cordelia, Desdemona, Lydia Languish, 
Dolores, Julia, and Roma. Address : Care Lieber fr Co., Knickerbocker

Canadian House of Commons, by his second wife, herself a delightful amateur 
actress, Miss MacTavish. Born in the Parliament Buildings, Ottawa, April 3rd, 
1 876, she was educated at Loretto Abbey, Toronto, and at the Convent of the 
Sacred Heart, Montreal. She graduated from the Empire School of Dramatic 
Acting, New York, in 1894, and made her first appearance in that city in 
" Shenandoah." An injury sustained while out riding laid her up for some 
months, but in 1896 she became leading lady with James O'Neill, and toured 
with him in the United States and Canada. She subsequently played with the 
Sothern Company, and scored a great success as Lady Ursula ; but it was not 
till 1898 that, as Roxane in "Cyrano de Bergerac," she gave evidence that she 
was in every sense an experienced actress, with a great future before her. As 
leading lady with Charles Frohman, in California, in 1899, she gathered fresh 
laurels, which have since been sustained and added to in the same capacity 
with the Empire Theatre Company, New York. As an emotional actress the 
critics say she reminds them much of Clara Morris (f.v.). Residence : New York.

that city, July 25th, 1865. Educated in England, she married, 1893, Clifford 
Con-, Esquire. According to "J/. A. P.," Mrs. Cory is perhaps somewhat 
outshone by the more brilliant social position of her only sister, Lady 
Carew ; "but," it continues, "she is a great favourite in society, is highly 
cultured, and has many accomplishments. Her talent for music is far above 
the average, and she shares with Lady Limerick the credit of being one of the 
best amateur pianists'in London. She practises regularly four hours a day, her 
execution is practically faultless, and she has received praise from Paderewski 
himself. Artistic embroider)' is another of her attainments, and she systematic- 
ally devotes two hours every day to this old-world occupation. Her work is so 
exquisite that the flowers she embroiders are faithfully copied from life, and 
prove a wonderful reproduction of natural form and colouring. Mrs. Clifford 
Cory is a tall, handsome woman, with a striking resemblance to Lady Carew. 
They both affect the same style of dress rich satins and velvets, many jewels, 
and large plumed picture hats." Residence : London, England.

originality."

chief among which may be mentioned the National Council of Women, of 
which, since 1902, she has been the corresponding secretary. According to the 
St. John Globe she possesses "grace of manner, a gentle and retiring disposi- 
tion, mild words and good looks." Residence : 44 Dewson Street, Toronto.

MADAME TARIEU HE LANAUDlfcRE (MARIE MADELEINE 
DE VERCHfcKES). 

Reproduced from a design by Edmond J. Massicotte, in Le Monde //lustre, Montreal. 

Marie Madeleine, daughter of Francois Jarret de Vercheres, a captain in the celebrated 
regiment of Carignan-Salieres, and his wife, Marie Perrot, was born at Yercheres, P.Q.,. 
April 1 7th, 1678. When but fourteen years of age she performed a deed of heroism which 
has made her name famous in the annals of her country. A narrative of this and other 
acts of equal courage and intrepidity by this lady was recently discovered in the Archives 
of the Mihistere dc Colonies, Paris, by Dr. Edouard Richard, the historian, and is repro- 
duced in the report on the Canadian Archives (Ottawa), printed in 1901. As regards the 
first of these, it tells how the young girl, when some four hundred paces outside the fort 
of Vercheres, eight leagues from Montreal, which fort belonged to her father and wa& 
then garrisoned by one single sentry, was nearly captured by the Iroquois, who carried 
off twenty of the settlers, one of the Indians pursuing her to the gate of the fort, which 
she managed to close, at the same time shouting " To arms !" as though the place had 
been fully garrisoned. She paid no heed to the lamentations of the women whose hus- 
bands had been carried off, but, donning a soldier's helmet, went through a number of 
movements intended to convey the impression that there were many men in the fort, 
loaded a four-pounder with ball and discharged it at the Indians. The siege was carried 
on for eight days, when relief arrived, and the Iroquois were driven off. Mdlle. de Ver- 
cheres married, in 1706, M. Pierre Thomas Tarieu de Lanaudiere, Seigneur of Ste. Anne 
de la Perade, and bore him two sons and one daughter. She died at Ste. Anne, August 
8th, 1747, her husband having predeceased her only a few months. She has been called 
the "Joan of Arc of Canada" by M. Chauveau, and her name and exploits have been sung 
by many poets, including Reacle, Dawson and Urummond. She is also the central figure 
in M. Gerard's play, " Fleur de Lys," produced in Montreal in 1902. Singularly enough, 
however, no public statue has yet been erected by Canada to this the greatest of her 
heroines. 80 




MADAME DE LA PELTRIE. 

From an oil painting in the possession of the Ursulines of Quehec. 

Marie Madeleine, daughter of the Sieur de Chauvigy, Seigneur de Van- 
bougon, was born in Ale^on, Normandy, in 1603. Early in life, to please her 
father, for she had always a preference for a religious life, she married the 
Chevalier Charles de Grivel de la Peltrie. In 1625, after five years of wedded 
life, she lost her husband, and being without children, she decided to use her 
fortune in the missions of New France. She sailed from Dieppe for Quebec, 
May 4th, 1639, accompanied by a servant and three Ursulme nuns, one of 
them being La Merc Marie de F Incarnation. In August, three days after their 
arrival at their destination, she laid the foundation of the Convent of the 
Ursulines there a religious community which for more than two hundred 
and sixty years has devoted itself to the education of young women in Canada. 
In 1642 Madame de la. Peltrie accompanied Mdlle. Mance to Montreal, and 
was present at the foundation of Ville-Marie by M. de Maisonneuve. She soon, 
however, returned to Quebec, where she died, November i8th, 1671. Her life 
in Canada was one of privation and self-sacrifice throughout. A good account 
of her life is given in Miss Pepper's " Maids and Matrons of New France."

LADY JOLY DE LOTBINIERE. 

From a photograph by Livernois, Quebec. Kindly furnished by her husband, 
Sir H. G. Joly de Lotbiniere, K..C.M.G. 

Margaretta Josepha, a daughter of the late Hammond Gowan, Esquire, of Quebec, 
married, 1856, Henri Gustave Joly, Esquire, Advocate, of the same city, who, through 
his mother, Julie Christine Chartier de Lotbiniere, a granddaughter of the last Marquis 
de Lotbiniere, whose name he added to his own in 1888, can claim connection with 
some of the oldest and most aristocratic families of France. Entering public life, M. 
Joly became Prime Minister of Quebec, was, later, a member of the Government at 
Ottawa, and, in June, 1900, was appointed Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia, an 
office he still fills. In 1895, f r ms public services, he was created a K.C.M.G. 
Throughout his public career, Lady de Lotbiniere has very ably seconded him in many 
things for the public welfare not exclusively political in character and purpose, and has 
otherwise shown herself to be a fitting helpmeet of a husband so distinguished. In 
1901 they had for their guests the present Prince and Princess of Wales. A woman of 
tender sensibility, her sympathies were early enlisted in the cause of the orphans of 
Quebec, and, later, she became warmly interested in the work of the National Council 
of Women, formed by the Countess of Aberdeen. She has also contributed to the intel- 
lectual culture of her sex by forming clubs in Quebec, Ottawa and Victoria for the study 
of Shakespeare among women. Among her children are two sons who bid fair to attain 
high distinction in the profession of arms, and two daughters, Mrs. Nanton and Mrs. 
Greenwood, who are models of beauty, grace and culture. Residence : Government 
House, Victoria, B.C. 82

Mary Anne, daughter of Major Jeremiah W. Dewson, formerly of the 35th 
Regiment of Infantry, with which he served under Wellington, and, subse- 
quently, of the 1 5th Foot, and his wife, Elizabeth Kinsey, was born at Ennis- 
corthy, Wexford, Ireland, while her father was stationed there with Jiis regi- 
ment, May 24th, 1817, and was married in Canada, December nth, 1838, to 
George Taylor Denison, Esquire, of " Rusholme," Toronto, then a lieutenant 
in the Queen's Light Dragoons, and afterwards lieutenant-colonel commanding 
the ist Regiment of York Light Dragoons, and other local corps, and Colonel- 
Commandant 5th and loth Military Districts, Upper Canada. Col. Denison 
died, May 3Oth, 1873, and Mrs. Denison, on September 1 5th, 1900. Mrs. Denison 
has not inaptly been called " a mother of soldiers," for of her seven sons, six of 
them have borne arms for their sovereign, a record hitherto, we believe, 
unequalled in Canada. Her eldest son, Lieutenant-Colonel G. T. Denison, for 
many years Police Magistrate of Toronto, has attained great distinction both 
as a volunteer militia officer and as a writer on military subjects. In 1877 he 
won the first prize offered by the Emperor of Russia for a " History of Cavalry." 
Since 1893 he has been President of the Britisk Empire League in Canada. 
Another son, Captain John Denison, R.N., commanded, for some years, the 
Royal yacht, Victoria and Albert.

MADAME DE ST. LAURENT (BARONNE DE KORTISSON). 
From a miniature in the possession of Mrs. Turner, Rosebank, Dartmouth, N.S. 

Madame Alphonsine Therese Bernadine Julie de Montgenet de St. Laurent, 
Baronne de Fortisson, was a French lady whom H.R.H. Prince Edward (after- 
wards Duke of Kent) first met in Martinique. She accompanied him to 
Quebec, and afterwards to Nova Scotia and to England, and for twenty-eight 
years presided over his household, as a local chronicler records, " with dignity 
and propriety." After the Duke's marriage to the widow of the Prince of 
Leiningen, in 1818, Madame de St. Laurent retired to a convent, and the date 
of her demise is unknown. Her first husband was the Baron de Fortisson, 
:i colonel in the French service. She is described as having been beautiful, 
clever, witty and accomplished. Many of her letters will be found in Ander- 
son's " Life of the Duke of Kent " (Quebec : 1870). In 1792 she stood sponsor,

From a photograph by Tollens C. Hzn, Dordrecht, Holland. 

Mrs. Mary Ella Dignam, painter and art critic, is the daughter of Byron 
Williams, Esquire, and his wife, Margaret Ellinor Ferguson, both of U. E. 
Loyalist descent, and was born in the County of Prince Edward, Ontario, 
January ijth, 1860. Her early art studies were pursued in Toronto and New 
York, and her first productions portraits and attempts in figure and land- 
scape were exhibited before the Royal Canadian Academy and the Academy 
of Design. Later, she continued her studies at Paris, but more recently she has 
been entirely under the influence of the Dutch school, and Holland has become 
her familiar painting ground. In this field she has been very successful. Her 
highest ambition, however, was to establish at Toronto a society of women 
artists, the outcome of which has been the Woman's Art Association of Canada, 
having branches in all the principal cities of the Dominion. Of this body she 
is the President. In addition thereto, Mrs. Dignam is an active member and 
office-bearer of various other organizations of a national character. She has 
also contributed largely to newspaper and periodical literature on art subjects. 
She married, 1880, John Sifton Dignam, Es.q., and is the mother of one son 
and two daughters. Residence : 284 St. George Street, Toronto.

Miss Dorothea Lynde Dix was born in the State of Maine, U.S., April 4th, 
1802, and died at Trenton, N.J., July i/th, 1887. She is regarded as having 
no peer in the annals of Protestantism as a philanthropist. To her exertions 
were due the foundation of a Lunatic Asylum at St. Johns, Nfld., and at Halifax, 
N.S., as well as the furnishing of the equipment of the first life-saving station- 
that at Sable Island established on the Atlantic coast. See "Life of Dorothea 
Lynde Dix," by Francis Tiffany (Hoston and New York: 1892).

LADY DORCHESTER. 

From a water-colour. Copy kindly furnished for this work by the Right Honourable 
the Baroness Dorchester, Greywill Hill, Winchfield, England. 

The above picture represents the ship London, with Lady Dorchester and 
family as passengers, ice-bound off Anticosti, Gulf of St. Lawrence. In the 
foreground Lady Dorchester and her son, Hon. George Carleton, are seen 
walking on the ice. This is supposed to be the only picture of her Ladyship 
ever taken. The Lady Maria Howard, daughter of the 2nd Earl of Effingham, 
was married, May 22nd, 1772, to Major-General Guy Carleton, afterwards Lord 
Dorchester, who was Governor of Canada on two occasions, namely, from 1 766 
to 1778, and from 1786 to 1796. She accompanied her husband to Canada, and 
lived at the Castle of St. Lewis, Quebec, the summer months being spent, 
occasionally, at St. Foy. The entertainments at the castle during the Dor- 
chester regime were of a princely character, especially those given in 
connection with the visit, in 1787, of Prince William Henry, afterwards King 
William IV. While at Quebec three children were born to Lord and Lady 
Dorchester, namely: Hon. Christopher Carleton, Hon. Maria Carleton (Lady 
Bolton), and Hon. Dudley Carleton. Her Ladyship, in 1775, presented colours 
to the jth Battalion of Quebec militia. Lady Dorchester was a devoted wife 
and mother, but she offended Canadian society by the formality of her manner 
and a rigid adherence to the etiquette of the Court of St. James. She died at 
the residence of her son-in-law, Lord Bolton, Hackwood Park, Basingstoke, 
Hants, England, March I4th, 1836. Her husband died November loth, 1808.

Ireland, was horn in Dublin, 1843, and received her education at home, at a school at Boulonge, France, and after- 
wards at a school near Liverpool. She lost her father at an early age, and, in October, 1862, married Lord Dufferin, 
.afterwards the brilliant statesman, administrator and diplomatist, who was raised to a Viscounty and Earldom in 
1871, and to the Marquisate of Dufferin and Ava in 1888. Lord Dufferin was appointed Governor-General of Canada, 
- June isth, 1872, and he continued as such up to October i8th, 1878. Afterwards he was successively Ambassador at 
St. Petersburg and at Constantinople, Viceroy of India, and Ambassador at Rome and at Paris, Lady Dufferin being 
with him at all these places, but both have declared that their happiest and busiest years were spent in the Dominion. 
While in Canada two of their children were born : Lord Frederick Blackwood, and the Lady Victoria Blackwood (now 
the Baroness Plunket, ?.r'.)- During his term of office in Canada Lord Dufferin, accompanied by the Countess, visited 
all portions of the Dominion, including British Columbia, and it was while in Manitoba, on one of these occasions, 
that her Ladyship drove the first spike on the line of the Canadian Pacific Railway. On another occasion she pre- 
sented colours to the Governor-General's Foot Guards, a local corps raised under her husband's auspices. After 
leaving Canada, she presented colours to the looth Royal Canadian Regiment, of the regular forces. Lady Dufferin 
was unquestionably the most popular Vicereine we have ever had in Canada, and is to-day, with the single exception 
of the Princess Louise, the qne whose memory is the most warmly cherished. The Dufferin entertainments exceeded 
in magnitude and splendour anything of the kind ever seen in this country, even in Lord Durham's time. Their

LA VENERABLE YOU D'YOUVILLE. 

From a painting by Heancourt. 

Marie Marguerite Dufros de la Gesmerais, who became one of the most 
noted philanthropists of New France, was the daughter of a French officer, by 
his wife, Renee Gaultier de Varennes, and was therefore a sister of Verendrye, 
the celebrated French explorer. Born at Varennes, P.Q., August I 5th, 1701, 
she was educated at the Convent of the Ursulines, Quebec, and, in August, 
1722, married Francois Madeleine You d'Youville, a gentleman of rank and 
fortune, belonging to Montreal. Left a widow, with two children, in 1730, she 
devoted the rest of her life to works of beneficence and charity, and was instru- 
mental in founding the order of the Grey Nuns, and with it the General 
Hospital, of Montreal. She died in Montreal on Christmas eve, 1771. 
Madame d'Youville is described as having been a most gifted, accomplished 
and amiable woman, having but one object in life, the good of her fellow- 
creatures. Her name is preserved in a street and a square in Montreal, and 
in numerous institutes and asylums elsewhere. Some years since steps were 
taken in the Catholic Church to secure her canonization, and she was declared 
" Venerable." Her life has been written by the Abbe Faillon, Lady Jette, and 
by Mgr. D. S. Ramsay.

THE RIGHT HONOURABLE MARY LOUISA, COUNTESS OF 
ELGIN AND KINCARDINE, C.I. 



Fron 



photograph by E. Day & Son, Bournemouth. Kindly furnished by her son, 
the present Earl of Elgin. 



Lady Mary Louisa Lambton, eldest daughter of the ist Earl of Durham, and his second wife, Louisa Elizabeth, 
daughter of the 2nd Earl Grey, was born in 1819, and married, November 7th, 1846, James, 8th Earl of Elgin and 
Kincardine, K.T., G.C.B., the eminent diplomatist and statesman, who was appointed Governor-General of Canada, 
January 3oth, 1847, an office he continued to fill till December i8th, 1854. Her Ladyship did not accompany her 
husband to Canada, but waited for a less inclement season, some months later. When she did come the Legislature 
passed an address of congratulation to Lord Elgin on her safe arrival, a compliment, we believe, unprecedented. (See 
'Journals L. A. of Canada," 1847.) This was Lady Elgin's second visit to Canada, as she had been here in 1838 
with her father and two of her sisters, the Ladies Emily and Alice Lambton. Lady Alice came with her 
now, together with her step-daughter, Lady Elma Bruce (now Lady Thurlow). Later she had as her guest 
her sister-in-law, the Lady Augusta Bruce (afterwards the wife of Dean Stanley). Lady Elgin remained in 
Canada, almost uninterruptedly, throughout her husband's term, during which time the seat of Government was 
moved from Montreal to Toronto, and thence to Quebec. It was the Elgins who first occupied " Spencerwood," 
Quebec, as a vice-regal residence. At Montreal they lived at " Monklands," and at Toronto at " Elmsley Villa." 
Their balls, fetes and other entertainments were of a most brilliant character, and are remembered to this day by 
" old-timers." It was they who renewed the custom of some of the early Governors of giving a ball upon the last 
night of the year. Lady Elgin was also much occupied with serious matters. She took a deep interest in the subject 
of education, and paid frequent visits to schools and colleges. She also did much for the relief of the poor and 
distressed, and was President of various hospitals and societies organized for that purpose. In Toronto she turned 
the first sod of the Northern Railway, and she was also present at the opening of the Lachine Railway, Montreal. 
On the latter occasion the Hon. Peter McGill, in proposing the toast of her health, said that she had given the example 
of every social and private virtue. Lord Elgin, in reply, said that "his wife's feelings for Canada involved not only 
the associations of the present, but the recollections of the past, and that she was anxious to identify herself with its 
interests in the future, and this not only in respect to society and its amusements, but also in regard to those more 
important matters on which the foundations of the prosperity of the country rest." She sketched beautifully, and left 
in this country some good specimens of her art. Two of her children were born in Canada, the present Earl of Elgin 
and the late Hon. Robert Preston Bruce. Lady Elgin afterwards accompanied her husband to India, on his appoint- 
ment as Governor-General of that country, and she continued to be with him there till his death, at Dhurmshalla, 
November 2oth, 1863. Her Ladyship died at Broomhall, Dunfermline, March roth, 1898, aged 78. She was one of 
the first to be enrolled in the Imperial Order of the Crown of India, on its creation.

period. Not long after his marriage he came to Canada, and was in occupa- 
tion of the Manor House, at Beauharnois, F.Q. (his father being Seigneur there), 
when it was attacked by the rebels in 1837. Both Mr. and Mrs. Ellice, and her 
sister, Miss Balfour, were made prisoners. Mrs. Ellice died at Edinburgh, 
April 1 3th, 1 864. In the volume from which her portrait is taken are some lines 
in reference thereto, by Henry F. Chorley, concluding as follows : 

" A new Belinda ! With her tresses rarer 
Than those which gave our courtly bard his la}' ; 
Blest is the man who won her well to wear her, 
Angel of household love, and, calmly gay, 
Companion to heguile life's darkest, weariest day ! "

Eliza Amelia, eldest daughter of General Sir Charles Gore, G.C.B., K.H., and his 
wife, Sarah Rachel, eldest daughter of the Hon. James Fraser, M.E.C. of Nova Scotia, 
was born at Quebec in February, 1829. Educated in part in Canada, she married 
at Montreal, September 2Oth, 1848, the 1 8th Earl of Erroll, Hereditary Grand High 
Constable and Knight Mareschal of Scotland, who was then an A.D.C. on the staff of 
the Earl of Elgin^ Governor-General of Canada. Among the gifts at the wedding, 
according to the Quebec Mercury, was a diamond bracelet from Queen Victoria, a 
diamond pin from the Queen Dowager, a bracelet costing five hundred guineas from Sir 
James Kempt, and a silver dressing case from the Duchess of Inverness. Of the issue 
of this union, two of the sons were born in Canada, including the present Earl of Erroll, 
K. T., who so highly distinguished himself in South Africa. Her Ladyship, after leaving 
Canada, accompanied her husband to the Crimea (where he was severely wounded), and 
was on board the steamer Caradoc when the battle of Alma was fought, from which the 
distant firing could be heard. Subsequently, she was for twenty-eight years Lady-in- 
waiting to Queen Victoria, who bestowed upon her many signal marks of her great 
regard, standing sponsor for one of her sons, appointing another a page of honour in 
her household, and conferring upon the Countess herself the Royal Order of Victoria 
and Albert. Lady Erroll is an exceptionally well-educated woman, and excels not only 
in music and languages, but also in riding, driving and boating. Among her husband's 
Aberdeenshire tenantry she was greatly beloved. She is an eloquent speaker, and is 
prominent in all efforts of temperance reform and Mothers' Union and Girls' Friendly 
Societies. In order to encourage the wives of the life-boat men to let their husbands go 
out to sea when needed, Lady Erroll herself went out with the life-boat at Port Erroll, 
one day when there was a heavy sea on, and her example had a good effect. Her 
husband died in 1891. Residence : Keiv Cottage, Kew, England.

From an oil painting in the possession of the Soeurs de la Providence, Montreal. 

Marie Emilie, daughter of Antoine Tavernier and his wife, Josephte Maurice, and 
granddaughter of Julien Tavernier and Marie Anne Girouard, was born in Montreal, 
February igth, 1800, and married, June 4th, 1823, Jean Baptiste Gamelin, Esquire, of 
the same city. He died in 1827, and the year after, having lost her surviving child, she 
gave herself entirely to religion and to works of charity, more especially the care of aged 
and infirm women. In 1828 she had succeeded in providing a small refuge in St. 
Lawrence Street, and, in 1831, she had secured a larger one in St. Philippe Street. 
Following up the good work, she obtained possession of what was known as La Maison 
Jaune, at the corner of St. Catherine and St. Hubert Streets. In 1841 this institution 
-was incorporated by the Legislature, under the name of the " Corporation lie FAsi/c lies 
Feinmes Agees et Infinites de Montreal? Madame Gamelin, together with the other 
petitioners, who included Mesdames Nolan, Lacroix, Cuvillier, Fabre (q.v.\ Viger, 
Perrault and Berthelot, became known as The Ladies of Providence, and large sums of 
money were raised by Mgr. Bourget and others, in 1843, to aid them in erecting a 
new building. The association, however, was not regularly constituted by the Bishop of 
Montreal till the year 1844, when its members were allowed to take simple vows and 
become nuns of charity, under the name, " I.cs Savirs de la Providence" Madame 
Gamelin, the foundress, became the first Superior. Since then the community has 
grown so widely, that if not the largest in the world, it is certainly the largest in America, 
having missions and houses throughout the continent. In Montreal, the Maison-inere, 
erected in 1888, L 'Hospice Gamclin, erected in 1894, and the new Asylum, in 1899, are 
among the most beautiful and extensive of such edifices there. The community also have 
charge of the Longue Pointe Lunatic Asylum, under contract with the Provincial Gov- 
ernment, where they care for about two thousand patients, and are proprietors of the 
Deaf and Dumb Institute, St. Denis Street, where they educate about three hundred 
pupils. They number about one thousand professed nuns. This saintly and venerated 
woman died in Montreal, September 23rd, 1851, her death occasioning widespread regret 
throughout the country. She was buried in the Chapel of the Order.

Mrs. Griffin (nee Major), the widow of the late Edward Griffin, Esquire, a 
prominent and enterprising citizen of Ottawa, has been long closely identified 
with philanthropic and other useful work at the Canadian capital. -She was 
the second recording secretary of the Orphans' Home, and also treasurer of that 
institution. On the foundation of the National Council of Women by the 
Countess of Aberdeen, she became recording secretary of the Ottawa local 
Council, a position she exchanged, in 1897, for that of recording secretary of 
the National Council. On the institution of the Victorian Order of Nurses, by 
the same lady, in 1897, she was appointed treasurer, an office to which she was 
reappointed, in 1898, in conjunction with Mr. J. M. Courtney. In the same 
year she was called to the presidency of the local Council of Women. The 
two last-named offices she still fills. In July, 1901, a special compliment was 
paid to her in being invited to be present on the occasion of the presentation 
to Queen Alexandra, by the Countess of Aberdeen, of the address of congratu- 
lation to Her Majesty from- the women ^>f Canada. Mrs. Griffin is said to 
possess fine executive powers. Residence : Russell House, Ottawa.

MADAME ALBANI-GYE. 

From a photograph by Alice Hughes, London. 

Marie Louise Cecile Emma Lajeunesse (popularly known as Madame Albani) was 
born at Chambly, P.Q., September 27th, 1847, and is the daughter of Joseph Lajeunesse 
and his wife, Melina Mignault. Educated at Plattsburgh, N.Y., and at the Convent of 
the Sacred Heart, Montreal, she early displayed musical gifts of a rare character. Her 
first appearance in public was made in Montreal, when she was seven years old. At a 
later period she sang in Quebec, and, at fifteen, she went to Albany, N.Y., to become 
an organist and teacher of singing. Her savings in these positions enabled her to 
proceed to Paris for the cultivation of her voice. Thence she went to Milan, to study 
under Lamperti for Italian opera. In 1870 she made her debut at Messina in "La 
Sonnambula," under the name of Albani, in compliment to an old and almost extinct 
Italian family, and met with immediate success, which was repeated in other cities that 
she visited on the continent. Her first appearance in England was made at Covent 
Garden Theatre, in 1872, in " La Sonnambula." She also sang in oratorio, that year, at 
the Norwich Festival. To recapitulate her triumphs since then, both at home and 
abroad, would be to repeat an oft-told tale. To-day she holds the undisputed position 
of "Queen of Song" in the twin dominions of oratorio and opera throughout the world. 
Madame Albani married, in 1878, Ernest Gye, Esquire, the well-known impressario, and 
is the mother of a son of much promise. Residence : Park House, EarPs Court Road, 
London, England.

Anna Maria, daughter of the Rev. Philip Yorke, Prebendary of Ely, and his wife, 
Hon. Anna Maria Cocks, daughter of the 1st Lord Somers, was born 1808, and married, 
November 27th, 1838, Edmund Walker Head, Esquire, M.A., who succeeded his father, 
as 8th Baronet, in the same year. In October, 1847, her husband was appointed 
Lieutenant-Governor of New Brunswick, which post he filled till September, 1854, when 
he was appointed Governor-General of Canada. He remained in the last-named office 
till October, 1861, and, returning to England, died there, January, 1868, when his title, 
which was created in 1676, became extinct. Lady Head was the mother of three 
children, one son (who was accidentally drowned in the river St. Maurice in September, 
1859) and two daughters, one of whom was born at Fredericton, N.B., February 6th, 
1849. Her Ladyship, according to Hon. R. W. Scott, P.C., who was personally acquainted 
with her while she was in Canada, "was a woman of fine presence, bright and intellec- 
tual, who did the honours with much tact." She sketched beautifully, and Mr. Scott 
recounts that when on a visit to Ottawa, in 1857, she drew a picture of the view from 
Major's Hill, which she subsequently presented to Queen Victoria, and this, with her 
Ladyship's vivid description of Ottawa and its surroundings, in his opinion, had 
weight with the Queen, as within a month or two after this event Her Majesty chose 
Ottawa as the seat of Government of United Canada. Lady Head was much given 
to works of charity, and went about herself among the poor, bestowing alms. During 
her husband's administration in Canada they received as guests the Prince of Wales 
(now King Edward VI I.) and suite, Prince Alfred (the late Duke of Edinburgh), and 
Prince Napoleon. A memorial of her Ladyship's visit to the Upper Ottawa, in a bark

married, in 1883, Sir Frederic Mitchell Hodgson, K.C.M.G., the present 
Governor of Barbados. In March, 1900, she accompanied her husband, who 
was then Governor of the Gold Coast, to Kumassi. While there several of the 
tribes forming the Ashanti Confederation broke out into open rebellion, and 
besieged the fort. She witnessed more than one of the minor engagements 
between the garrison of the fort and the rebels, and it will be remembered 
that after enduring many hardships it became necessary, on account of the 
failure of provisions and the non-arrival of relief, for the slender and weakened 
garrison to make the attempt of breaking through the rebel lines. The 
attempt was successful, owing to the bravery of the Housa native troops, under 
the command of Major Morris, D.S.O., and after incredible hardships the 
whole party, with only a few casualties, reached the coast. Lady Hodgson, 
who was the first English lady to visit Ashanti, has given a very graphic 
account of the siege and of the subsequent march to the coast, in her inter- 
esting book, called " The Siege of Kumassi." Residence : Government House,

weeks of her death, which occurred at London, Ont., June 7th, 1888. She had 
married, in 1879, Mr. J. T. Ualton, a member of the same company. The 
announcement of her death occasioned widespread regret, and many beautiful 
tributes were paid to the memory of " the charming songstress and clever 
actress" in the newspapers of the day, one of the most touching and eloquent 
being from the pen of the late John Lesperance (" Laclede ") in the Montreal 
Gazette. The range of her repertoire was wide, and the number of operas 
which she knew by heart much beyond the average. The music of Donizetti, 
Bellini, Balfe and Wallace suited her best, and it was in some of their chief 
characters that she won her greatest triumphs.

Augusta Louisa, youngest daughter of the late Hon. John Beverley Robinson, and 
his wife, Mary Jane Hagerman (q.v.), is equally distinguished in the musical and social 
annals of Toronto, in which city she was born. During her father's term as Lieutenant- 
Governor of Ontario, 1880-87, she was associated with her mother in dispensing the 
hospitalities of Government House, where her charm of personality and her rare vocal 
.gifts gained for her the highest regard. She subsequently took vocal instruction in 
London, from Randegger, and in Paris, from Laborde. She sang in London at many 
public concerts, in company with other artists of the highest reputation, and was also on 
tour in the Provinces. The London Morning Post said her intonation was almost per- 
fection, and her voice was most meritorious in its clearness of enunciation and its finished 
production. In London she was associated in friendship and in domicile with the dis- 
tinguished song composer, Maude Valerie White. She returned to Canada in 1895, and 
after going on tour with Madame Albani, in the following season, remained on this side 
of the Atlantic. She has also sung on tour with Pol Plancon, Plunket Greene, and 
Signor Foli. She married, October 8th, 1898, Stewart Fielde Houston, Esquire, Bar- 
rister. Residence : /j St. George Street, Toronto.

daughters, who both displayed musical talents at an early age. After their 
father's death, their mother, who was in straitened circumstances, determined to 
put her daughters' gifts to use on the stage. Accordingly the sisters made 
their debut at the Adelphi Theatre, Buffalo, in February, 1876. Unknown to 
them they were billed as the " Irwin Sisters," a name they adopted, and by 
which the elder sister is still known, the other sister being married to Senator 
Grady. In 1877 the sisters went to New York, and for nearly a decade were 
great favourites at Tony Pastor's Theatre. It was there that May learned the 
tricks of ready improvisation which have helped to make her the most 
successful American comedienne of her time. While there, Miss Irwin 
accepted an offer to join Augustin Daly's company, and she was with him from 
1883 to 1887. Then she branched out as a "star" in the boisterous farce

MRS. JACK. 

From a photograph by Notman, Montreal. 




Canada, on her marriage with Robert Jack, a Scotch farmer who possessed a fine horti- 
cultural taste, and encouraged his wife's literary work. Realizing the difficulties in the 
way of farmers' wives, she stipulated for one acre of land to be devoted to any depart- 
ment of horticulture she chose, the profits to be her own pocket-money. This was faith- 
fully adhered to, and the result, after twenty years' experience, was demonstrated in the 
Rural New Yorker, by Mrs. Jack, under the title " A Woman's Acre." A large family 
and domestic cares have kept her busy, but as shrubs and trees have grown and blos- 
somed, the acre has become a Mecca for many a horticultural pilgrimage, its renown 
being mainly due to the variety of plants that have been tested within its limits. Besides 
this Mrs. Jack has found time to write stories and poems for various newspapers and 
magazines. " Women's Work in New Channels," contributed to Harper's Young People, 
was from her pen, as also the letters of " Loyal Janet," on social topics, in the Montreal 
Witness. In the latter journal she has conducted for some years a department on flowers 
and fruit. In 1902 she published a volume, " The Little Organist of St. Jerome, and 
Other Stories," which affords some entertaining pictures of the quaint life of the French 
Canadian habitant. During the present year (1903) a second volume from her pen, 
entitled " The Canadian Garden : A Pocket Help for the Amateur," has been published 
in Toronto. Her husband died in April, 1900. Residence: " Hillside? Chateanguay

Superintendent-General and Inspector-General of Indian Affairs in British North America. 
Lady Johnson, whose loveliness Mrs. Grant of Laggan has described in her " Memoirs 
of an American Lady," was also a woman of understanding and vivacity, and bore 
herself with becoming dignity when detained by the Whigs of New York, in 1776, as a 
hostage for the good conduct of her husband, after the latter's escape to Canada. After 
joining Sir John Johnson here, she lived principally in Montreal, the summer months 
being spent, frequently, on her husband's seigniory at Argenteuil, on the Ottawa river.

Johnson, was killed at the siege of Badajoz, in 1814 ; one daughter, Catherine Maria 
Johnson, married Major-General Bernard Foord Bowes, who fell at Salamanca, in 1812,

on sick leave, he volunteered for service in the Crimea, and was present with the Con- 
naught Rangers at the taking of Sebastopol. In 1857 he left for India, to rejoin his old 
regiment. The mutiny had broken out before his arrival, but young Joly, amid a 
myriad perils, succeeded in reaching General Havelock at Cawnpore, and marched with 
him to the relief of Lucknow, where the 32nd were in occupancy of the Residency. He 
fell, at Lucknow, September 251)1, being struck down by a bullet in the midst of the 
struggle Havelock was making to reach the Residency, and died expressing his satisfac-

From a photograph by Murray & Son, Brockville, Ont. 

Eliza Maria, daughter of Robert Harvey, Esquire, of Maitland, Ont., was 
born there, and educated in Scotland. She married, 1860, Chilion, sixth son 
of the late Mr. Justice Jones, of Toronto, and is the mother of two sons and 
three daughters. Mrs. Jones enjoys the reputation of being one of the most 
successful stock-raisers and horse-breeders in America. As a girl she gave 
much attention to dairying and to the systematic management of a herd of 
Jersey cattle which became famous and took the first prize at all the great 
exhibitions in Canada. It is said that a large basket would not hold all the 
medals gold, silver and bronze won by this herd, without counting silver 
cups and silver services taken in the United States. At a later stage, Mrs. 
Jones became a horse-breeder, and her stable has acquired such a pinnacle of 
fame that racers and carriage horses from it find a ready sale in all parts of 
America. Mrs. Jones is the author of a book, " Dairying for Profit," which 
has met with an extensive sale. One of her daughters, Miss Elsie Jones, is a 
noted horsewoman. [While going to press, we regret to hear of the death of 
Mrs. Jones, which occurred at Gananoque, Ont., April 6th, 1903.]

LADY LAURIER. 

From a photograph by Topley, Ottawa. 

Zoe, daughter of G. N. R. Lafontaine, Esquire, and his first wife, Zoe Lavinge dit Tessier, was born in 
Montreal, and received her education at the School of the Bon Pasteur in that city, and at the Convent of the Sisters 
of the Sacred Heart, St. Vincent de Paul, where she became proficient in music, an accomplishment which has 
never left her. Losing her mother at an early age, she was thrown into the society of her future husband under 
romantic circumstances, resulting in their marriage, in Montreal, May i^th, 1868. Mr. Laurier was then a member of 
the junior bar, but he had already begun to attract the attention of his friends by reason of his singular gifts as a 
public speaker gifts which, with other intellectual attributes, were soon to be used for the benefit and advantage of 
his country, and which would ultimately secure for their owner a foremost place among native statesmen. Owing to 
Mr. Laurier's delicate state of health at that time, the young couple moved into the country, taking up their residence 
at Arthabaskaville, which continued to be their home from that time till their permanent removal to Ottawa in 1896, 
in consequence of Mr. Laurier's elevation to the Premiership of Canada at that time. With the capital Lady 
Laurier as she subsequently became entitled to be called was no stranger, for she had been accompanying her 
husband thither at each succeeding session of Parliament, for many years, and even while still in the "cold shades of 
Opposition " had succeeded in gathering together a goodly circle of friends, who were always strongly in force, 
despite many adverse influences, at her Saturday evening musicales. "A thorough woman," says Mr. Willison, 
" the secret of Lady Laurier's success lies in her unaffected grace and charm of manner, there being not the slightest 
pretence or taint of affectation about her." Under present conditions she still keeps up her weekly receptions, and 
these have become exceedingly popular with friends and politicians of all classes and schools. In addition to her many 
social duties, she finds time to attend the meetings of many of the charitable and other useful associations common 
to her sex. On the formation of the National Council of Women of Canada, by the Countess of Aberdeen, she became 
one of the Vice- Presidents at large of that body. She is also Honorary Vice-President of the Victorian Order of Nurses. 
In 1897 Lady Laurier accompanied the Prime Minister to England, on the occasion of the celebration of Queen 
Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, and besides taking part in the ceremonies connected therewith, visited Her Majesty at 
Windsor Castle. Her husband and herself also attended the Queen's garden party and the Queen's State ball at 
Buckingham Palace. Subsequently they travelled in France and Italy. In 1901 Lady Laurier participated in the 
festivities incident to the visit to Canada of the present Prince and Princess of Wales, and was delegated to present to 
the Princess the gift of the women of Ottawa, consisting of a fur cloak. Lady Laurier also accompanied Sir Wilfrid 
to England, in 1902, and was present with him in Westminster Abbey at the coronation of King Edward and his 
Royal Consort. She wore on that occasion a magnificent diamond tiara, consisting of 175 selected diamonds, the gift to 
her Ladyship of the members of the Senate of Canada on the Government side. An important feature of their stay in 
London, at that time, was a grand banquet at the Hotel Cecil given by Sir Wilfrid and Lady Laurier and other visiting 
Canadian ministers to their friends, which was attended by the Princess Louise (Duchess of Argyll), Lord and Lady 
Minto, Lord and Lady Strathcona, and nearly every Canadian o^f note then in the British capital. Before leaving 
England, Lady Laurier received in person from Queen Alexandra the silver Coronation medal. Residence : j6f

editorials for the Manitoba Free Press which attracted much attention and 
were widely copied. Subsequently, she wrote on international subjects for the 
New York Evening Post, the Review of Reviews, and the Montreal Herald, 
and on the French Fishing Shore (Labrador) question for the New York 
Herald, the Westminster Gazette, and other papers. Following the success 
achieved by her first book, and in the same field, she published, in 1902,

Mrs. Ada Maria Lewis is the fifth surviving child of the late Evan Leigh, Esquire, of 
Manchester, England, and was born in that city. Educated in Germany and at Paris, she 
evinced great talent in painting and music, but gave up these accomplishments to devote 
herself entirely to works of philanthropy, in the carrying out of which she has achieved a 
world-wide reputation. As a young girl, she was honorary secretary to an association 
founded at Manchester, to relieve the suffering'operators there during the existence of the 
cotton famine, in the sixties, and she also opened a soup kitchen, at that time, at her own 
expense, which three days a week provided dinners for three parishes. But even before 
this she had taken the first steps towards securing the establishment at Paiis of mission 
homes, for English girls living in that city, four of which homes, through her efforts, now 
exist, together with an orphanage, the property thus secured being valued at ,40,000. 
Not long afterwards she founded an English and American Church at Neuilly, collecting 
f, 1 8,000 for the purpose. Visits to the French prisons were also instituted by her with 
many beneficial results. She was likewise the means of having the manufacture of 
carpets substituted for the picking of oakum in some Irish reformatories. In February,

wife, Olivia, second daughter of Sir John Stevenson (who married, secondly, the 2nd Marquis of Headfort, K.P., 
P.C.), was born in 1821. She married, first, April 8th, 1835, the Right Hon. Sir John Young, and Baronet, G.C.B., 
O.C.M.G., a distinguished statesman and administrator, who was successively Chief Secretary for Ireland, Lord High

died December 2oth, 1889); and thirdly, Henry Trueman Mills, Esquire, of Lubenham, Market Harborough. Her 
Ladyship died at Paris, July igth, 1895. Lady Lisgar was a handsome and affable woman, who for years led society 
in its most brilliant phase, and made her social state resplendent by her social attributes. As mistress of The Lodge, 
in Phoenix Park, no one ever excelled her in the art of rendering her salons the centre of the reunions of a brilliant city ; 
and the admiration which her entertaining qualities won through New South Wales was continued in Canada during 
her stay in this country. The two chief social occurrences of her period were the visit of Prince Arthur (now Duke of 
Connaught), who remained in Canada for ten months^ and that of the Grand Duke Alexis, of Russia, both of which, 
especially the former, were attended with unusual stir and festivity. Lord and Lady Lisgar accompanied His Royal 
Highness Prince Arthur on his principal tour through the country, meeting him on his arrival at Halifax, August 22nd,

"beautifully, and while living here drew many pictures of Canadian scenery. Both she and her husband gave liberally 
to all deserving objects. They visited all the provinces, and travelled extensively in the United States. In May, 
1870, her Ladyship officiated in Montreal at the investiture of Colonels Smith, Fletcher, McEachren and Chamberhn 
with the C.M.G., in recognition of their services during the Fenian raids. Among the guests at Government House

From a photograph by Fraser Bryce, Toronto. 

Kathleen Macfarlane, youngest daughter of the late Daniel Home Lizars r 
Esquire, Judge of the County Court of the County of Perth, Ontario, and his. 
wife, Esther, fourth daughter of Captain John Longworth, who had served in 
both the navy and the army of Great Britain, was born at Stratford, Ont., and 
educated in Toronto and Scotland. Although she has written many unsigned 
articles for newspapers and magazines, of a graceful and witty character, Miss 
Lizars is known in a literary sense, chiefly, by two historical works, and a 
novel, which have been the joint production of her sister (Mrs. Robert Smith> 
and herself. These, respectively, are entitled : " In the Days of the Canada 
Company," " Humours of '37," and " Committed to His Charge," and have all 
evoked favourable criticism both from the native and the foreign press. As- 
women writers, Mrs. Coleman ("Kit") places the Lizars sisters "in the top 
form," while Professor Clark, of Trinity College, Toronto, has detected in their 
novel much that reminds him of Jane Austen. Miss Lizars was for some years- 
Private Secretary to the late Hon. John Robson, when Premier of British Col- 
umbia, and accompanied him to England on a public mission. She is now, 
in collaboration with Mr. Henry J. Morgan, preparing a book on Canadian life 
and character, for a London publishing house. Residence : " The Minne- 
tvaska," Gravenhurst, Muskoka, Ont.

Regiment, a distinguished officer, who had served in the expedition to Sweden, under 
Sir John Moore, afterwards in Portugal and Spain, in the Peninsula, in the campaign in 
Holland, at New Orleans and at Waterloo, where he received four severe wounds. After 
his marriage he was British resident at Zante, and commanded a division in Canada 
during the rebellion of 1837-8. Later he became Lieutenant-Governor of Jersey, com- 
manded a camp at Shorncliffe, and was made Inspector-General of Infantry. He was 
created a C.B., 1839, a K.C.B., in 1856, and attained Lieutenant-General's rank in 1857. 
In 1858 his name was mentioned in connection with the Governor-Generalship of 
Canada. He died January I3th, 1866, aged 77- Lady Love saw much of the world with 
her husband, and having a great taste for music and drawing, received tuition in these 
branches from the best masters. In an article taking leave of the 73rd Regiment, which 
her husband commanded in Canada, the Montreal Gazette, March I2th, 1841, regrets, on 
behalf of the society of that city, the departure of Mrs. Love, who had endeared herself 
to all by her amiable qualities and high accomplishments. " Those," it continued, " who 
have enjoyed the pleasure of examining her finely executed and numerous views of 
various scenes in the Eastern Townships, and the upper parts of the Province, will unite 
with us in the hope that the fair artist may consent to their being published, when Mrs. 
Love's taste and genius will be made as manifest to the world as her kindly and graceful 
manners have been appreciated, wherever she has resided in Canada." Lady Love was 
one of three sisters, the other sisters being Mrs. Willis, the wife of Archdeacon Willis, of 
Nova Scotia, and Mrs. Wedderburn, the wife of Alexander Wedderburn, Esquire, of 
St. John, N.li. She survived her husband and left no issue.

Esquire, Montreal. 

Miss Hannah Willard Lyman, a successful and inspiring teacher of youth, was born 
at Old Northampton, Mass., in 1816, and died at Poughkeepsie, N.Y., 'where she was vice- 
principal of Vassar College, February 2ist, 1871. She commenced to teach at Gotham 
Academy, Maine, and she subsequently taught in Mrs. Gray's Seminary for Young Ladies 
at Petersburg, Virginia. For the next twenty-two years she conducted a seminary for 
young ladies, in Montreal, which took the lead of all similar institutions in the Canadas. 
Her natural gifts, amounting almost to a genius for her profession, were enriched by an 
education of no ordinary range. She was a sister of Rev. Henry Lyman, a missionary, 
who was murdered by the natives in Sumatra in 1832, and whose life she has written 
{New York: 1857); also of the late Lieut. -Colonel Theodore Lyman, and the late Colonel 
S. J. Lyman, of Montreal. The Rev. Dr. Campbell, in his "History of the St. Gabriel 
Street Church, Montreal," says that "the name of Miss Lyman is yet as ointment poured 
forth in many hearts and homes, not only in Montreal, but all through Canada, for the 
blessed influences which she exerted as an instructor of young ladies." A memorial of 
her is preserved in McGill University by the "Hannah Willard Lyman Fund," raised by 
subscriptions from her former pupils, and invested as a permanent endowment to furnish 
annually a scholarship or prizes in a college for women affiliated to the university, or in 
classes for the higher education of women. Her remains were brought to Montreal and 
laid in Mount Royal Cemetery.

Miss Mary Teresa Cafjfrey, a native of Dublin, Ireland, married, in that city, 1847, 
Thomas D'Arcy McGee, author and journalist, who, on account of his participation in 
the "Young Ireland" movement, was forced to leave his native land, in disguise, and 
take refuge in America. In 1850, after he had made a home for his wife at Boston, 
Mass., she joined him there, and they continued to live in the United States up to 1857, 
when Mr. McGee removed to Canada, where he was elected to Parliament, and became, 
in 1862, a member of the Government. After a career of much usefulness and great 
distinction, he was assassinated, in Ottawa, by a member of the Fenian Brotherhood, 
April 7th, 1868. Mrs. McGee bore her husband five children, three of whom died in 
infancy ; the remaining two, both girls, now live at Santa Clare, Cal., one, Euphrasia, 
being the wife of Mr. Quinn, an advocate. After her husband's tragic death, Queen 
Victoria sent Mrs. McGee an autograph letter expressive of her sympathy and condol- 
ence, and stating how highly she had appreciated his services in the cause of Imperial 
authority in the land of his adoption. The Duke of Buckingham, then Colonial Secretary, 
wrote at the same time to Lord Monck, the Governor-General, conveying the regrets 
of Her Majesty's ministers that so able a statesman and so good a citizen should have 
fallen a victim to a Fenian bullet. A state funeral was accorded Mr. McGee's remains, 
and Parliament voted a pension to his widow and children. A testimonial fund was also 
subscribed by the people. Mrs. McGee died suddenly, in Montreal, January I7th, 1871, 
aged 46, while on her knees at prayer, her end being hastened by the sad trials which she 
had undergone. She is described by the late Mrs. Sadlier, the novelist, as "a woman of 
much force of character who was fitted to shine in society by her brilliant conversation 
and fine wit. She was devoted to her husband, admired his talents, and was altogether 
a true helpmeet. He was equally devoted to her, respected her sterling qualities of head 
and heart, and was often guided by her wonderful perception of character." Several 
of Mr. McGee's poems are addressed to his wife.

occasions, even when, as the first lady of her native Province, she had among 
her guests, at Government House, Royalty itself, in the person of Her Royal 
Highness the Princess Louise. She and her father had also entertained the

Grenville canal, in the form of a coping stone, which was laid by her in 1874. She died 
in Toronto, March 3oth, 1893, and was buried, alongside the remains of her husband, 
in Lakeview Cemetery, Sarnia. Mr. William Buckingham, one of her husband's bio- 
graphers, writes of her : " While at Ottawa Mrs. Mackenzie had to play a chief role in 
a brilliant circle. It was what may be called the renaissance period of our social life, and 
the Court she graced was in point of munificence and splendour unexampled in the 
history of the Dominion. In that supreme moment she showed how well she merited 
her husband's confidence and love how nobly she was qualified to help and support him 
in every phase of his varying life. She was not dazzled by the light, but took her place, 
as he had taken his, with a quiet dignity and kindliness, frankness and charm of manner 
which disarmed criticism and conquered every heart."

MRS. WILLIAM LVON MACKENZIE. 

From an oil painting executed not long after her marriage. Kindly furnished by her son-in-law, 
John King, Esquire, K.C., Toronto. 

Isabel, second daughter of Peter Baxter, Esquire, was born in Dundee, Scotland, July, 1802, and coming to 
Canada, in 1822, was married, in Montreal, on the ist of July of the same year, to William Lyon Mackenzie, Esquire, 
then of the firm of Mackenzie & Lesslie, Dundas, U.C. Of this union the issue was thirteen children, three sons and 
ten daughters, of whom five died in infancy, and only two survive, namely, Janet, the wife of Charles Lindsey, 
Esquire, City Registrar, Toronto, and Isabel Grace, the wife of John King, Esquire, K.C., Toronto. Mrs. Mackenzie 
possessed a high degree of intelligence and a thorough knowledge of the political history of the time, and was in some 
respects quite as remarkable a personality as her husband, whose fortunes she shared for nearly forty years with patient 
fortitude and unwearied devotion. She had many domestic virtues, and a gentleness of disposition and fine womanly 
courage which were fully tested during her husband's stormy career. She accompanied him to England in 183-2, and 
while there was the guest with him of Joseph Hume, M.P., a distinguished Liberal statesman. At the time of the rebel- 
lion of 1837-8, in which Mr. Mackenzie bore so conspicuous a part, she and her young family were exposed to imminent 
-dangers in their Toronto home. Afterwards she joined her husband, and was the only female who was present on 
Navy Island with the insurgent forces. She arrived there shortly before the destruction of the steamer Caroline^ and 
remained with her husband as long as her health permitted, making with her own hands the cartridges for the men, 
and by her fearlessness inspiring with courage the undisciplined force who were holding the island. A natural refine- 
ment of manner, as well as of face and feature, and a gentle, placid nature were characteristic qualities of this lady. 
After the return of her husband from exile, in 1849, the family lived continuously in Toronto, in the homestead in Bond 
Street, which had been presented to Mr. Mackenzie by his friends and admirers. Mr. Mackenzie died there, August 
28th, 1861, and his devoted wife twelve years afterwards, on January i2th, 1873. Both were buried in the family plot 
in the Necropolis, in lhat city. In 1868 the Ontario Legislature voted Airs. Mackenzie $4,000, in payment of a debt 
due to her late husband by the old Province of Upper Canada.

Elizabeth Sarah, eldest daughter of the late William Molson, Esquire, President of 
Molson's Bank, Montreal, and his wife, Elizabeth Badgley, and granddaughter of the 
Hon. John Molson, in his lifetime a member of the Executive and Legislative Councils 
of Lower Canada, and President of the Bank of Montreal, was born and educated in 
Montreal, and married, June i8th, 1844, David Lewis Macpherson, Esquire, merchant, 
of Montreal, who subsequently entered public life, was called to the Senate of Canada, 
by Royal proclamation, 1867, sworn of the Privy Council, 1880, and was appointed a 
K.C.M.G., 1884. There was issue of this marriage two sons and five daughters. The 
latter (consisting of Elizabeth Frances, wife of the late Hon. R. R. Dobell, M.P., P.C., 
Quebec ; Naomi, wife of the late Thomas Beckett, Esquire, Quebec ; Helen, wife of the 
late Major Meyrick Bankes, Highland Light 'Infantry, London ; Christina, wife of P. F. 
Ridout, Esquire, Toronto ; and Isabel Louise (<p.v.), wife of the late SirG. E. Kirkpatrick, 
P.C., K.C.M.G., formerly Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario, Toronto) have all, like their 
mother, held a distinguished place in society. Lady Macpherson had lived in Toronto for 
forty years or more, and her home, there, in Chestnut Park, had been the scene of much 
generous hospitality. Among the guests at the Macpherson mansion had been almost 
every one of note, either living in or visiting the country, in her day. One of the most 
magnificent entertainments ever given in Ottawa was a ball given in the Senate chamber 
by this excellent couple, while Sir David Macpherson was Speaker of the Senate. Both 
Sir David and his wife had been the guests of Royalty in England. Lady Macpherson 
was one of the organizers and an active office-bearer of the Toronto Ladies' Educational 
Association. She died, after a long illness, at San Remo, Italy, March 23rd, 1894, aged 
74. At her request her remains were cremated, and the ashes brought to Toronto and 
deposited in Mount Pleasant Cemetery there. Sir David Macpherson died on board the 
steamship Labrador, in mid-ocean, August i6th, 1896, and his remains were laid in the 
same place. A fine tribute to the many excellences of character of Sir David and Lady 
Macpherson was pronounced in the Senate by the Honourable William Miller, K.C., 
shortly after the former's death. 225

MRS. CHARLES MAIR. 

From a photograph taken at the time of her marriage. 

Mrs. Charles Mair, whose loyalty and heroism during the first Riel Rebellion gives her name so honourable a 
place in the history of Manitoba, is a daughter of the late Augustus Mackenney, Esquire, and was born and educated 
at Amherstburg, Ont. She first went to Manitoba in 1862 the year of the Sioux massacre in Minnesota and as the 
route followed oy the party with whom she was (composed of her parents and others), lay through a portion of the 
scene of the outbreak, their experiences were sometimes of a trying and eventful character. Her father, who was 
engaged in the fur trade, after a few years, owing to failing health, returned to Canada with his family, but his 
daughter came back to the settlement in 1868, with her uncle and aunt, Sir John and Lady Schultz, and in September 
of the same year, was married, in Winnipeg, to Charles Mair, Esquire, then an officer employed by the Canadian 
Government. On returning from their wedding journey to St. Paul, they accompanied Mr. Macdougall, the newly- 
appointed Governor of Manitoba, and party, to Pembina, where the latter was stopped by order of the insurgent 
chief, Riel, who had just previously assumed the direction of affairs at Fort Garry. Mr. and Mrs. Mair, however, 
determining to proceed, were stopped at St. Norbert, where they were taken prisoner under the same authority. 
After four days' detention they were released, and, arriving at Fort Gairy, found it in possession of the rebels. Great 
trouble followed, until Mrs. Mair and the present Lady Schultz were taken prisoners, with their husbands and the 
rest of the loyal band of Canadians who were gathered at the Schultz mansion for self-protection and to oppose, 
however feebly, the plans and purposes of the insurgents, composed of half-breeds and Irish-Yankee Fenians. Impris- 
oned in Fort Garry, Mrs. Mair found herself within the walls, separated from her husband, and on attempting to leave 
her place of confinement was brought back, by order of Riel. During the weeks that followed, she was only twice 
allowed to see her husband, who, on the last of these occasions, informed her that Riel had intimated to him that he was 
to be shot, and that as he intended, if possible, to escape, she should make another effort to get away, as, otherwise, in 
the event of his success, she might be detained as a hostage. With the assistance of a friend (Miss Drever), Mrs. Mair 
was allowed to leave, and took up her quarters in the settlement. Some weeks afterwards her husband escaped and 
reached Portage la Prairie, where his wife, who had run the gauntlet of the guards, disguised as a man, in a half-breed 
capote, cap and sash, joined him. The expedition organized by the loyalists at the Portage for the capture of Fort 
Garry and the release of the prisoners confined there, followed, and after its collapse Mr. Mair and Sir John Schultz 
escaped to Canada, taking different routes. It was then mid-winter, and their journey was made on snow-shoes. ^ After 
the former's departure, the rebels made search for him at the Portage, and not finding him, determined to take his wife 
back with them, but this scheme was happily frustrated through the astuteness of another lady, Mrs. George. In March 
following she returned, herself, to Fort Garry, to make search for some papers belonging to her husband, and arrived 
there the very day Thomas Scott, the loyalist, was so barbarously murdered by Riel. While still there her eldest 
daughter, Maude Louise (now the wife of B. E. Crichton, Esquire, of Brynmawr Ranch, Okanagan Valley, B.C.), 
was born, she being the first child of British Canadian parentage to be born at Red River, after the passing of the 
Manitoba Act. Mrs. Mair's life has since been largely spent m the Saskatchewan territoiy and in British Columbia, 
and she is rightly to be called one of the pioneers of Western Canada. She is the mother of seven children, four of 
whom survive. Her only son saw service in South Africa during the recent war. She is now preparing, for early 
publication, her experiences of primitive life in the old Red Rive$ Settlement. Residence: Winnipeg^ Manitoba.

Lennox, K.G., who was Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, 1807-13, and Governor-General of 
Canada, 1818-19 ( ar| d died in Canada), and his wife, Charlotte, daughter of Alexander, 
4th Duke of Gordon, married, as his second wife, October gth, 1815, Colonel Sir Peregrine

London, May 3Oth, 1854, he was a full General and a G.C.B. It is related that Sir 
Peregrine and Lady Maitland first met at the ball given by her mother, at Brussels, on 
-the eve of Waterloo a ball which Lord Byron commemorates in " Childe Harold," and 
which is frequently mentioned in history. Proposals of marriage followed, and were 
favourably received by her Ladyship. "But," according to Mr. D. B. Read, "the Duke 
objected, and flatly refused his consent," on account of Maitland's inferiority of rank. 
"Subsequently," continues Mr. Read, "while her father was resident in Paris, during its 
occupation by the allied armies after Waterloo, she one day deserted the parental roof, 
repaired to the brave officer's quarters, captured her soldier, and married him without 
her father's consent."* While in Upper Canada the Maitlands lived for -some years 
at Stamford. Lady Sarah was known in society as " The lovely Lennox." They 
had a numerous family, and at least six of their children were born in this country. One 
daughter married Lord Francis Kerr, and another daughter the Rev. Sir Thomas Eardley 
Wilmot Blomefield, Bart. Her Ladyship died September 8th, 1873.

MISS MATHER. 

From a photograph by Baker, Columbus, Ohio. 

Margaret, daughter of John Finlayson, and known on the stage as Margaret 
Mather, was born at Tilbury, Ont., October 2 1st, 1860. Her parents, who were 
very poor, removed to Detroit, Mich., when she was a little girl, and up to her 
fourteenth year she sold newspapers in the streets of that city. In despair, one 
night, she attempted suicide by throwing herself into the river. Being rescued, 
she was placed in a position to cultivate her great natural gifts for the stage. 
Her studies included Shakespeare, and under the elocutionist, George Edgar, 
she developed extraordinary power, and made her professional debut in her 
favourite role of Juliet at McVicar's Theatre, Chicago, August, 1882. She met 
with immediate success, and, with each succeeding year, her popularity con- 
tinued to grow, especially as Juliet, which she had played oftener than any.actress 
on the American stage. Her repertoire, besides Shakespeare, included Sheridan 
Knowles, Lytton and Tobin, but she was constantly adding new attractions to 
her list. In 1897 she eclipsed all her previous efforts, in the production of 
" Cymbeline," at a cost of $40,000, she playing the role of Imogen. She had 
previously purchased from Gounod the original manuscript of the oratorio of 
"Jeanne d Arc." Miss Mather, who was exceptionally beautiful in person, was 
twice married, her second husband, from whom she was divorced, in 1897, 
being Gustav Pabst, of Milwaukee. Her death occurred, suddenly, at 
Charleston, West Virginia, April 7th, 1898, she having experienced a nervous 
collapse while acting on the stage. She was buried in Elmwood Cemetery, 
Detroit, wearing in death the costume of Juliet.

THE TOMB OF LIEUTENANT-COLONEL AND MRS. MATHEW^ 

From a photograph taken expressly for this work by E. A. Duffy, Esquire, 
London, England. 

Mary, daughter of Mr. James Simpson, who had served as a volunteer with Fraser's Highlanders at 
the siege of Louisbourg, was born in Quebec, about 1760, and received her education in that city. A girl 
of marvellous beauty, it was she whose personal and mental charms led to a proposal of marriage from 
the immortal Nelson, in 1782, he being then in Quebec, in command of the Albentarle. They met in 
uebec society, more particularly under the hospitable roof of Nelson's mercantile friend, Alexander 
avison, and, probably, before Nelson's departure, at the house of her father. Whether or not Nelson's 



S 



Alhemarle, on the i4th of October, was ready for sea, Captain Nelson had taken his leave, and had gone 
down the river to the place where the men-of-war usually anchored ; but the next morning, as Mr. 
avison was walking on the beach, he saw Nelson coming back in his boat. On his reaching the landing- 
place the former anxiously demanded the cause that occasioned his friend's return. ' Walk up to your 
house,' replied Nelson, 'and you shall be made acquainted with the cause.' He then said, ' I find it 
utterly impossible to leave this place without again waiting on her whose society has so much added to 
its charms, and laying myself and my fortunes at her feet.' Mr. Davison earnestly remonstrated with 
him on the consequences of so rash a step. ' Your utter ruin,' said he, ' situated as you are at present, 
must inevitably follow.' 'Then let it follow,' exclaimed Nelson, ' for I am resolved to do it.'" The 
account goes on to state that a severe altercation ensued, but that Mr. Davison's firmness at length 
prevailed with Nelson, who, with no very good grace, relinquished his purpose, and suffered himself to be 
led back to his boat. Miss Simpson afterwards married, in England, Lieut.-Col. Robert Mathews, whom 
she had met at Quebec, first, when he was Major of the 53rd Regimejit, and afterwards, when he was Mili- 
tary Secretary to Lord Dorchester. He was appointed Major of Chelsea Hospital, October 6th, 1801, and 
held that post till his death, July sth, 1814, aged 69. His widow survived him, and died October 26th, 
1840, aged 80. Both are buried in the cemetery attached to the hospital, under three tiers of stone, as. 
represented in the above picture. Mrs. Mathews was in London during Nelson's funeral, in 1806, " but 
had not fortitude," as she wrote to a friend, " to witness the melancholy sight."

entertaining the present Prince and Princess of Wales. She also accompanied the illustrious visitors on their 
journey across the continent to British Columbia, a journey she had previously taken, with the Governor-General, 
when they went to the Klondike. Throughout her sojourn in the Dominion Lady Minto has shown much activity 
and energy in out-door sports, especially skating, to the cultivation of which art, together with the entertainment of 
visitors, foreign and domestic, both her husband and herself have devoted unlimited attention. Her Ladyship has 
also given time and thought to various schemes and works of a useful and benevolent character. Through her 
instrumentality, a wing, known as the Minto Wing, was added to the Maternity Hospital at Ottawa. She also 
instituted a fund, to which she subscribed liberally, for the erection of cottage hospitals in remote districts, and another 
fund for the location, protection and decoration of the graves of Canadians wno had fallen in the service of the

Badgley, was married in Montreal, June, 1845, to John Molson, Esquire, eldest son of 
the Hon. John Molson, of the same city, and had five children, of whom John William

and the most successful. It was very popular and ran through several editions. Among 
her subsequent books were : " Life in the Clearings," " Flora Lindsay," " Mark Hurdleston," 
"The World before Them," " Matrimonial Speculations," and "Dorothy Chance." Mrs.

From a photograph by Barnett, London. 

Mary Hope Morgan is the eldest surviving daughter of His Honour Judge Morgan, 
of Toronto, and his wife, Clara Matilda Hope, fourth daughter of the late D'Alton 
McCarthy, Esquire, of Barrie, Ont. Born in Toronto, she early displayed remarkable 
vocal talent, and was placed at Loretto Abbey, in that city, for instruction. Thence she 
went to Paris, and became a favourite pupil of Madame Marchesi, who predicted a 
brilliant future for her. Galignani, at this time, said that she showed more dramatic 
intelligence and originality than any of the other pupils of the gifted instructress. 
Another critic said that she was " not only a consummate singer but a consummate 
actress." On the completion of her course, Miss Morgan proceeded to London, where 
she was most successful in concert work, and received many engagements. Her real 
de'but as an opera singer was made at Naples, in the great soprano role of Marguerite, 
in Faust." This was followed by a similar success at Brussels. Since then, when her 
health has permitted, she has appeared at concert recitals in London and elsewhere, 
and, in September, 1900, she opened the concert season in Toronto, at Massey Hall. 
She has frequently sung before Royalty. St. Paul's says that her voice, clear as a bell, 
is of a marvellously sympathetic quality, and that her singing appeals and fascinates.

Miss Mary Morgan, a well-known authoress ancl poet, is the daughter of the late 
James Morgan, Esquire, of the firm of Henry Morgan & Co., Montreal, and, as her father 
was, is a native of Scotland. Educated in Montreal, she intended originally to study 
medicine, but was thwarted in her design by the inability of McGill University at that 
time to receive women students. As the result of an agitation commenced by her, this 
-disability was afterwards removed. Miss Morgan has since devoted herself entirely to 
literature. She was a frequent contributor to the Week and the Open Court, writing 
under the nom-de-plume of "Go wan Lea." Some of her poems have appeared in 
" America's Younger Poets." Among her books are : " Woodnotes in the Gloaming,'' 
"Sonnets in Switzerland," " Poems and Translations," "Marguerites," and " Echoes from 
the Solitudes." The last-named is placed by Mrs. Coleman ("Kit") alongside of Thomas 
a Kempis and Marcus Aurelius as a book for thought and meditation. Miss Morgan now 
lives much abroad, and she has been presented at several European courts. Address :

From a photograph by Aim Dupont, New York. 

Clara Morris, who has been described by Henry G. Watterson as " the greatest 
emotional actress of her time," was born in Toronto, March I7th, 1849, being the 
daughter of a French Canadian father and an Irish mother. After three months she 
was taken by her mother to Cleveland, where she remained during early girlhood. In 
1 86 1 she entered the profession in which she was destined to achieve such great dis- 
tinction, as a member of the ballet. Her advancement was so rapid that, in 1869, she 
had become leading lady at Wood's Theatre, Cincinnati. She became a member of 
Augustin Daly's 5th Avenue Company, New York, in 1870. Here she laid the foundation 
of her reputation as one of the most able and talented actresses on the American stage, 
especially in emotional roles like "Camille," "Alixe," " Miss Multon," " Mercy Merrick," 
and "Cora/' She travelled extensively, and was for many years a " star " of the first 
magnitude. Of late, in addition to publishing her autobiography and other works, she 
has contributed many interesting articles to the magazines. Owing to ill-health Miss 
Morns has recently been compelled, much to the public regret, to retire from the stage, 
for the time being. In April, 1903, a grand testimonial benefit, under the management 
of Miss Amelia Bingham, was given to Miss Morris, at the Broadway Theatre, New 
York, which realized over $6,000. On this occasion Sarah Bernhardt cabled a beautiful 
tribute to the genius and worth of our gifted countrywoman. Residence : " The Pines"

Charlotte, eldest daughter of the late Major John Nickinson, of Toronto, and his 
wife, Ann Talbot, was one of several clever and accomplished sisters, who all distin- 
guished themselves upon the stage. Born in Quebec, 1832, she early evinced dramatic 
talent of the highest order. Her father, who was also an eminent actor, leased a theatre 
in Toronto, in 1852, and it was probably in that city that Miss Nickinson made her debut. 
In the same year she played with her father in Quebec for sixty nights, taking the ancient 
capital by storm. She was called "La Jeune Quebecoise!' 1 and was nightly called before 
the curtain by delighted audiences. " The more we see of her," said the Mercury, " the 
more cause do we perceive for Quebec's being proud of her daughter." Her repertoire, 
which was subsequently much enlarged, included Ophelia, Lady Gay Spanker, Lady Teazle, 
Kate Kearney, Melanie (in which she is represented in the print from which the above 
picture is taken), and Nan the Good-for-Nothing. Returning west, her father became the 
lessee of the Royal Lyceum Theatre at Toronto, and at that house she was the leading 
lady, playing all the Shakespearean roles, with other characters, up to the period of her 
retirement from the stage, on her marriage with Mr. Daniel Morrison, an eminent jour- 
nalist, in April, 1858. She returned to the stage, under contract with Mr. J. W. Buckland, 
of Montreal, 1864. After her husband's death, in April, 1870, she assumed the manage- 
ment of the Grand Opera House, in Toronto, then newly built by a company, and main- 
tained her old reputation as a talented and sterling actress for several seasons. One of the 
incidents of her management was the performance of the " School for Scandal " in 1877, 
a hundred years after its first performance in London, the play being produced under the 
patronage of Lord Dufferin, whose mother was a Sheridan. Mrs. Morrison now lives in 
retirement in Toronto with her two daughters, and devotes much of her leisure to charitable 
and church work. She was a prominent member of the National Council of Women, 
formed by the Countess of Aberdeen when in Canada, and subsequently filled, for some 
years, the office of President of the Toronto Relief Society. No resident of the " Queen 
City" is more highly respected. Residence: go St. Joseph Street, Toronto.

was buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery there, her funeral being one of the largest ever 
witnessed in Toronto. Her husband died in the same city, April igth, 1903, and was 
interred beside the remains of his wife. One who knew her well thus wrote of Lady 
Mowat : " 111 health rendered necessary her withdrawal in a great measure, or alto- 
gether, from society for some years before death, and in consequence she slipped out of 
public acquaintance and recollection. She was uncommonly intellectual and highly 
cultured, was distinguished by exceeding kindness of heart, was social in her tastes, and 
remarkable for dignity and grace of manner as well as for personal beauty. As a wife 
and mother, as well as otherwise, she was a wise counsellor, a delightful companion and 
a valuable friend. She was justly held in very high esteem by all who had an opportunity 
of knowing her." She was one of the chief originators and the first President of the 
Toronto Ladies' Educational Association. Five of her children survive, namely, Mr. 
Sheriff Mowat, Mr. Arthur Mowat, Mrs. C. R. W. Biggar, Mrs. Thomas Langton, and 
Miss Mowat (q.v.}.

TABLET IN EXETER CATHEDRAL, ENGLAND, ERECTED TO THE 
MEMORY OF MRS. E. J. O'BRIEN.

The tablet above represented bears the following inscription : " Sacred to the 
memory of Rachel Charlotte O'Brien, wife of Captain E. J. O'Brien, of His 
Majesty's 24th Regiment, and daughter of Jos. Frobisher, Esq., of Montreal. 
Her death was occasioned by her clothes catching fire ; seeing the flames com- 
municating to her infant, all regard to her own safety was lost in the more 
powerful consideration of saving her child, and rushing out of the room she 
preserved its life at the sacrifice of her own. She expired on the I 3th December, 
1800, in the nineteenth year of her age." Underneath this on a white marble 
tablet are the following lines : 

" If sense, good humour, and a taste refined, 

With all that ever graced a female mind ; . 

If the fond mother and the faithful wife, 

The purest, happiest characters in life ; 

If these, when summon d to an early tomb, 

Cloth'd in the pride of youth, and beauty's bloom, 

May claim one tender, sympathising sigh, 

Or draw a tear from pity's melting eye, 

Here pause and be the faithful tribute paid, 

In sad remembrance of O'Brien's shade." 

Mrs. O'Brien, according to Colonel Landmann, R.E., was the only daughter of 
Joseph Frobisher, one of the founders of the North-West Fur Company, and a 
distinguished citizen of Montreal. He married, in January, 1779, Miss Charlotte

Julie, eldest daughter of Pierre Bruneau, Esquire, merchant, of Quebec, who represented 
that city in the Lower Canada Assembly during several Parliaments, and his wife, Anne 
Robitaille, was born and educated in Quebec. One of her teachers was Mr. L. T.

having been both beautiful and intellectual. She married, at Quebec, in 1818, the Hon. 
Louis Joseph Papineau, a great tribune of the people, who was then Speaker of the 
Legislative Assembly.* He subsequently headed an insurrection in Lower Canada, and, 
on its failure, went into exile. Madame Papineau, who took a lively interest in politics, 
was throughout a devoted helpmeet and counsellor to her husband. She accompanied 
him, first to the United States and then to France, and only returned to her own country 
when she could bring her husband with her. She died suddenly, of apoplexy, at the 
Manor House, Montebello, on the Ottawa River, August i8th, 1862, aged 66, her latter 
years being spent there, with her husband and children, in contentment. In addition 
to three or four children who died in infancy, she was the mother of three sons 
and two daughters, namely : Louise Joseph Amedee Papineau, formerly prothonotary at 
Montreal (still living) ; Lactance, a physician (who died in F ranee many years ago) ; 
Gustave, a journalist and law student (also dead) ; Marie Rosalie Ezilda (who died in 
1894, unmarried) ; and Marie Julie Azelie (who married Napoleon Bourassa, Esquire, and 
died in 1869). In all the relations of life she showed herself a model woman.

united in marriage, at Poitou, France.

MISS PARKINSON. 

From a recent photograph. Kindly furnished by her father. 

Amy, daughter of C. P. Parkinson, Esquire, of Toronto, was born in Liver- 
pool, England, and came to Canada with her parents in childhood. According 
to Dr. Rand, her formal education ceased when she was twelve years of age, 
her health failing her. For twelve years she has not risen from her bed. 
Previous to that time she gave no promise of poetic talent, and its possession, 
even in a slight degree, was scarcely suspected by her parents. Nevertheless, 
she has composed many beautiful pieces, by which she has earned for herself 
the title of "The Canadian Havergal." Among her published booklets of verse 
are "Love through All," "A Voice from a Sick-room," "In His Keeping," 
and " Best." Her poems are dictated to her father, and it is noteworthy that 
her mind is specially vigorous in composition as she is passing into or recover- 
ing from the severe attacks which seize her, any one of which might prove 
fatal. According to N. F. Caswell, she has no superior among Canadian poets, 
either past or present, in the special line to which she devotes herself.

well-known sugar refinery, in that city, and from that time, up to her return to England, 
with her husband, in the seventies, was almost a continuous resident of Montreal. A 
wealthy, widely travelled and accomplished man, Mr. Redpath became President of the 
Board of Trade and of the Montreal Art Association, but he is best remembered for his 
noble benefactions to McGill University, consisting principally of the endowment of the 
Peter Redpath chair of pure Mathematics ; the erection of the Peter Redpath Museum ; 
the erection of the University Library Building ; and of large contributions, in money 
and books, towards the maintenance and increased usefulness of these important adjuncts. 
In all, the value of his gifts amounted to about half a million dollars. After leaving 
Canada, Mr. and Mrs. Redpath took up their abode at the Manor House, Chiselhurst, 
Kent, a picturesque, many-gabled mansion, having historic memories of Queen Elizabeth, 
and her great Chancellor, Walsingham. There Mr. Redpath died February ist, 1894,

higher education, and both before and since her husband's death, has given largely to 
McGill University. In 1894 she contributed $i 1,500 for museum expenses ; in the same 
year she contributed $40,500 for the maintenance of the library ; and only recently she 
has completed the building of an additional wing to the Redpath Library. Very fittingly, 
a portrait and bust of Mr. Redpath, with a portrait of Mrs. Redpath, have been placed by 
the governors of this great seat of learning in its main gallery. Residence : The Manor

From a photograph by Pittaway, Ottawa. 

Grace Vernon, daughter of the late Thomas Nicholson, Esquire, and his wife, Amy 
Gardner (who married, secondly, Vice-Admiral William Fitzwilliam Owen, R.N.), married, 
1856, as his second wife, the Hon. William Johnston Ritchie, a Judge of the Supreme Court 
of New Brunswick, who became Chief Justice of the Province, 1865, a Judge of the Supreme 
Court of Canada in 1875, and Chief Justice of Canada in 1879, the honour of knighthood 
following in 1881. The issue of this marriage was a numerous family of sons and daugh- 
ters, one of the sons devoting himself to the Church, and three to the law. A younger 
son volunteered for service in South Africa during the recent war, and was wounded 
slightly at Paardeberg. Sir William Ritchie died in Ottawa, September 25th, 1892, aged 
72, and was buried in Beechwood Cemetery there. At the time of his death he was the 
oldest judge, in length of service, in the Queen's dominions. Lady Ritchie, both at St. 
John, her former home, and at Ottawa, since she went to reside there, has occupied 
a very distinguished place in society. During the visit of the present King of England 
to Canada in 1 860, she had the honour of being selected to dance with him at Fredericton. 
In Ottawa she has belonged to various women's associations, and has been a tower of 
strength to all of them. She was the first president of the Woman's Humane Society, 
from which she resigned at the time of her husband's death.* When Lady Aberdeen 
established the Local Council of Women at Ottawa, she was made its President, and thus 
became a Vice- President of the National Council of Women. One of the promoters of 
the Women's Canadian Historical Society, she was for years a Vice- President of that body. 
She has also been connected with the Victorian Order of Nurses since its organization, and 
is one of the Board of Governors thereof. When the Canadian South African Memorial 
Association was formed by the Countess of Minto, she was appointed a member of the 
Central Committee, a position she still holds. She is undoubtedly one of the foremost 
women workers in Canada, her services well entitling her to recognition in the event of a 
Royal Order being established for the decoration of colonial women. Residence : 285 
Metcalfe Street, Ottawa. 

* Since going to press (1903), Lady Ritchie has been elected President of the Ottawa Humane Society.

and Charlotte Amy, wife of Francis Stuart Stanley, Esquire (g.v.). Lady Rose, who was a woman of 
beauty, grace and culture, was long the dominant social figure in Montreal, and her husband's advance- 
ment in life was due in a large measure to her wise counsel and ready tact. Their house, " Rosemount," 
which was occupied by the Prince of Wales (now King Edward VII.), during his visit to Canada, 
in 1860, and by Prince Arthur (Duke of Connaught), when quartered in Montreal with his regiment ten 
years afterwards, was the scene of some of the most brilliant entertainments ever given in the commercial 
metropolis. Among those who had been guests there, at one time or another, were the several Governors-

MRS. G. W. ROSS. 

From a photograph by Fraser Bryce. Kindly furnished by her husband, the Hon. G. W. Ross, LL.D. 

Catherine, daughter of Wm. Boston, Esquire, Toronto, was born in the Township of 
Lobo, County of Middlesex, Ontario, November roth, 1847, and was of Scottish descent, 
her father being a native of Melrose, Scotland. As a very young girl, it is said that she was 
a pupil of her husband, when he was a public school teacher. She was married to Mr. 
Ross, as his second wife, November I7th, 1875, and bore him four children, one son and 
three daughters. Throughout she was a true helpmeet, giving up her whole life to secure 
the happiness and success of her husband. Her chief characteristic was common sense, 
and a womanly devotion to her husband and family, which was truly heroic. While very 
unassuming, she was an intellectual woman, and took a warm interest in public affairs. 
Few ladies were seen more frequently in the gallery or on the floor of the Legislature, and 
few knew so much of what was going on in the political world, or could form so quick and 
so just an estimate of men and measures as she could. One of the few occasions on which 
she appeared officially before the public was when she, at the request of the Ontario 
Historical Society, unveiled the Laura Secord monument at Lundy's Lane, June 22nd, 
1901. Her husband, who was naturally proud of such a wife, paid a handsome tribute to 
her many excellences of character, at Niagara Falls, on their return from a visit to 
England, September 2ist, 1901. He said his wife was like "the shadow of a great rock in 
a weary land, and a tower of strength to the Ontario Government." Her death occurred 
at Toronto, March I2th, 1902, her remains being interred in Mount Pleasant Cemetery 
in that city. The Montreal Star voiced the public sentiment in saying that her removal 
would be generally deplored. " As the daughter of a member of Parliament, the sister of 
another, and the wife of a Provincial Premier, she had a deep sense of the responsibilities 
of a public man's helpmate. She drew to her the literary, the artistic, and those inter- 
ested in educational work, and she took an active part in charitable undertakings and 
enterprises worthy the aid of devoted wives and mothers."

eminent mathematicians in the world. He married, in 1864, the eldest daughter

both affable and dignified, held a high place in Canadian society, and enjoyed

From a photograph by Gauvin & Gentzel, Halifax. 

Miss Margaret Marshall Saunders, who has become one of the foremost writers of animal 
stories in the world, is the daughter of a Baptist clergyman, the Rev. E. M. Saunders, D.D., 
and his wife, Maria Kisborough Freeman, and was born in Milton, Queen's County, Nova 
Scotia, April I3th, 1861. She claims descent from John Alden, the first pilgrim from the 
Mayflower to set foot on Plymouth rock, the same who, with his wife, Priscilla, is immor- 
talized in Longfellow's "The Courtship of Miles Standish." On her mother's side she 
counts descent from another Mayflower pilgrim. Born amid romantic surroundings, 
Miss Saunders early became a student and a writer. After completing her education in 
France, she returned to Canada, and did her first work for newspapers and magazines. 
Her first story, " My Spanish Sailor," appeared in 1887. This was followed by "Beau- 
tiful Joe,"* the autobiography of a dog, which won the $200 prize offered by the American 
Humane Education Society for the best story illustrative of the kind or cruel treatment 
of domestic animals and birds in the Northern States, and other animal stories which 
have been extensively read. She has also written love stories, which, in the opinion of 
Katharine Hale, have " an irresistible charm." The best known of her works, in addition 
to those we have mentioned, are " Daisy," " Charles and his Lamb," " The House of 
Armour," " Rose a Charlitte," " The King of the Park," " For the Other Boy's Sake," 
" Deficient Saints," " For his Country," " Her Sailor" (" My Spanish Sailor" rewritten), 
" Tilda Jane," and " Beautiful Joe's Paradise." Miss Saunders has seen much of the 
world, and is described as one who possesses genius, heart and insight. Residence : 28 
Carl ton Street, Halifax, N.S. 

* The subject of this story died at Meaford, Ont., September :3th, 1899, in the eighteenth year of his age.

LADY SCHULTZ. 
From a photograph by Topley, Ottawa. 

Agnes Campbell, daughter of James Farquharson, Esquire, of Kingston, Jamaica, and later of 
British Columbia, married, in 1867, John Christian Schultz, Esquire, Doctor of Medicine, who was one 
of the first members returned to represent Manitoba in the House of Commons at Ottawa after the 
acquisition of the North-West Territories by the Dominion. He was appointed Lieutenant-Governor of 
Manitoba in 1888, and, in 1895, in acknowledgment of his public services, was created a K.C.M.G. by 
Queen Victoria. At his death in April, 1896, his remains received the honours of a State funeral. Dr. 
Schultz had more particularly distinguished himself as leader of the Loyalists during the rebellion at Red 
River, 1869-70, when he was arrested and imprisoned by Riel. His wife came very prominently into 
notice at that time, in connection with her efforts for the succour and release of her husband and his 
friends, efforts which were ultimately crowned with success. In recognition of her courage and constancy, 
under the many trying circumstances of her situation, she was presented, in 1870, with a service of plate, 
by citizens of Montreal, and with a gold watch, by citizens of Toronto. While mistress of Government 
House, Winnipeg, during her husband's regime, she had as guests the Earl and Countess of Derby, and, 
subsequently, the Earl and Countess of Aberdeen. As strict prohibitionists, Sir John and Lady Schultz 
would not allow the use of wines or liquors at their table, either before or after they entered Government 
House. Devoted to church and charitable work, Lady Schult/ has taken an active interest in the 
Hospital Aid Society, the Children's Home, the Women's Auxiliary and other kindred organizations, 
with which she was and is officially connected. She was the first local President of the Women's 
Council, and Vice- President of the National Council of Women, under the Countess of Aberdeen. Like 
her husband, she has always been warmly devoted to the sovereign and the Royal family, and, in 1893, 
led the movement in Manitoba for the presentation of a wedding gift to the Prince and Princess of Wales. 
She has recently erected a memorial window to her husband in Holy Trinity Church, Winnipeg.

MRS. R. W. SCOTT. 

From a photograph by Topley, Ottawa. Kindly furnished by her husband. 

Mary, daughter of the late John Heron, Esquire, and Frances, his wife, was born 
and educated in Dublin, Ireland. She married, at Philadelphia, Pa., November 8th, 
1853, Richard William Scott, Esquire, Barrister, of Bytown (now Ottawa), who subse- 
quently entered public life, became a member of the Ontario Government, and, later, 
of the Dominion Government (of which he is now a member, for the second time), and 
continues to hold a highly distinguished place among Canadian statesmen. The issue 
of this marriage has been two sons and four daughters, one of the latter being married to 
George J. Desbarats, Esquire, C.E., a brother of the Baroness de Blaquiere (?.?'.) The 
sons are William L. Scott, Local Master in Chancery, and D Arcy Scott, Barrister, 
Ottawa. Mrs. Scott was one of several clever and highly accomplished sisters, known 
in professional life as " The Heron sisters," who, on the completion of their studies in 
music, came with their parents to America in the early fifties, and subsequently created 
a fyrore in the United States, the British provinces, and the West Indies by their 
exquisite singing. They toured in Canada in company, for a time, with Sir William 
Henry Don, a baronet of Nova Scotia, whose title, now extinct, dated back to 1667. 
One of the sisters married Signor Testa, a renowned tenor ; another married William 
Rape, Esquire, Spanish Consul at Dresden, and a third married Allan J. Scott, Esquire, 
a brother of the Hon. R. W. Scott. Perhaps the most talented of the sisters was 
Madame Testa, whose beautiful and highly-cultivated contralto voice won many laurels 
in Italian and English opera. She died in the city of Mexico, March 24th, 1891. Mrs. 
Scott, on her marriage, left the stage, and has since resided at Ottawa, which from 
a small settlement has grown, in her day, to be the beautiful and populous capital of 
British North America. In addition to her daily round of duties, she, as long as health 
permitted, always found time to lend her assistance to every cause in which her co-opera- 
tion was desired, having for its object some worthy or desirable undertaking. On the 
formation of the National Council of Women, by the Countess of Aberdeen, Mrs. Scott 
was placed on the Executive Committee, and she is now a Vice-President of the Local 
Council. No lady in Ottawa is held in a higher regard by all classes. Residence : 274 
Daly Avenue, Ottawa.

Laura, eldest daughter of Major Thomas Ingersoll, a U. E. Loyalist, who afterwards founded the 
town of Ingersoll, Upper Canada, and his first wife, Elizabeth, daughter of Israel Dewey, Esquire of 
(.real Barnngton, Mass., was born in Massachusetts, December, 1775. In or about 1791, she accom- 
panied her father and stepmother (her father's third wife) to Canada, which from that time became her 
home. She married, not long afterwards, James, youngest son of Lieut. James Secord, and his wife. 
Madeleine Badeau, and lived with him at St. David's and at Queenston, on the Niagara frontier Her 
husband was also of Loyalist stock. He served during the War of 1812, and assisted in carrying the body 
of General Brock from the field of combat after he had fallen. At the third attack on Queenston, Secord 
was wounded, and it is on record that he would have been clubbed to death by the enemy as he lay 
helpless on the ground, if his wife, hearing of his mishap, had not gone to his assistance. Other brave 
and meritorious deeds rendered during the war have been attributed to her, but her crowning achieve- 
ment, and that which has given her name an eternal fame in Canadian history, took place on June 2ird, 
1813, as tersely recounted in the inscription on the public monument erected in her honour, at Lundy's 
Lane, in 1901 : " To perpetuate the name and fame of Laura Secord, who, on the 23rd of June 1813

Elizabeth Posthuma, only daughter and heiress (by Elizabeth Spinckes, his wife)

her relative, Colonel John Graves Simcoe, M. P., late of the Queen's Rangers, who, in 
July, 1 792, was appointed first Governor of the Province of Upper Canada, which position 
he filled till July, 1796. In the latter year he became Governor of San Domingo, and

duties of this office, as he died suddenly, at Torbay, October 26th, 1806, aged 54. Mrs. 
Simcoe accompanied her husband to Canada, arriving at Quebec, on H. M. S. Triton,

portion of the journey being made in canoes. The Due de la Rochefoucault-Liancourt, 
who visited the Simcoesat Newark (Niagara), in 1795, describes Mrs. Simcoe as "a lady 
of thirty-six years of age. She is bashful and speaks little, but is a woman of sense, 
handsome and amiable, and fulfils all the duties of a mother and wife with the most 
scrupulous exactness. The performance of the latter she carries so far as to act the part 
of secretary to her husband. Her talent for drawing, the practice of which she confines 
to maps and plans, enables her to be extremely useful to her husband." Mrs. Simcoe 
also accompanied her husband to San Domingo. She died at the family seat, Wolford 
Lodge, near Exeter, Devonshire, in 1850. She was the mother of two sons and six 
daughters. One daughter, Katherine, was born in Canada, and died here in infancy.

LADY THOMPSON. 

From a photograph by Topley, Ottawa. 

Annie E., daughter of John Affleck, Esquire, of Halifax. N.S., and his wife, Catherine Saunders, 
was born and educated in Halifax. She marred, in 1870, John Sparrow David Thompson, Esquire, 
Barrister, who subsequently ran a distinguished career as a public man. Entering the Provincial Assem- 
bly, in 1877, he became, two years afterwards, a member of the Local Executive, then Premier of Nova 
Scotia, then a Judee, then a Privy Councillor of Canada, with office, and then Prime Minister of Canada. 
He was created a K.C.M.G. in 1888, and, at his death, December i2th, 1894, had just been sworn as a 
Privy Councillor at Windsor Castle. His sudden demise created a painful sensation everywhere, and 
awakened a deep feeling of sympathy for his widow and children, consisting of two sons and two 
daughters. Her Majesty Queen Victoria, in whose presence Sir John Thompson had expired, gave 
expression to her sorrow in a private interview with the deceased statesman's daughter, and sent a tender 
message of condolence to his widow. She also placed a wreath upon his coffin, and ordered that the 
remains be taken to Halifax in state, in one of Her Majesty's war vessels, which was done. After the 
state funeral at the latter place, a fund was raised for the benefit of Lady Thompson, headed by Lord 
Strathcona with a subscription of $5,000, the Parliament of Canada contributing thereto $25,000. The 
education of the sons was undertaken by the Governor-General, the Earl of Aberdeen. Lady Thompson, 
who is a cultured and capable woman, has, since her husband's death, lived much in retirement. She has 
travelled abroad, and while with Sir John Thorn oson in England, on one occasion, was presented to 
Queen Victoria, at a garden party given at Marlborough House by the then Prince and Princess of 
Wales. She co-operated with the Countess of Aberdeen in founding the National Council of Women, and 
was one of its presidents at large. She has also given her support to the Victorian Order of Nurses by 
becoming a governor of the order. Residence : " Denuent Lodge" Sherboume Street^ Toronto.

travelling in England. She married, October aoth, 1867, as his second wife, the Hon. Samuel Leonard Tilley, C.B., then 
Minister of ^Customs, a distinguished statesman who had been largely instrumental with others in securing the political 
union of British North America. There was issue of this marriage two sons : Herbert Chipman Tilley, born September 
th, !868, and Leonard Percy DeWolfe Tilley, born May 2ist, 1870. Mr. Tilley, who had been previously Premier of 
New Brunswick, became Lieutenant-Goyernor of that Province in 1873, and, after serving for a second time in the 
Dominion Government (1878-85), was in the latter year recalled to the Lieutenant-Governorship, and continued 
therein up to within a short period of his death, June 25th, 1896. He was created a K.C.M.G. in 1879. While living 
at Ottawa, Lady Tilley was one of the principal figures in a brilliant circle of women led by the Baroness Macdonald 
of Earnscliffe, no society event being considered complete without her. At all the entertainments given in honour of 
the Duke of Connaught while on his first visit to Canada, and, afterwards, during the stay here of his sister, the 
Princess Louise, she was prominent. Subsequently, while in England, in July, 1884, she and her husband had the 
honour of being presented to Her late Majesty Queen Victoria, at Osborne, by the Princess Louise. They also 
attended a garden party given by the present King and Queen, at Marlborough House, and a State ball at Buck- 
ingham Palace. After taking possession of Government House, Fredericton, for the second time, in 1885, Lady Tilley 
gave herself up almost wholly to benevolent work, with the result that, since that time, she has been instrumental in 
giving to her native Province several institutions which will be of lasting benefit to its people. Chief among these 




Ottawa, and Mrs. W. H. Howland, of Toronto. Lady Tilley has been a prominent member of the National Council 
of Women since its organization, and, we believe, is still President of the St. John Local Council. As a proof of their 
consistency of principle, it may be mentioned that during the thirteen years-Sir Leonard and Lady Tilley held the first 
place in New Brunswick, no intoxicants of any kind were in use at their entertainments. One who knows Lady Tilley 
intimately speaks of her as "a born leader, who is always in the forefront of every aggressive movement." "Her 
sympathies,' adds the same writer, "are with the advance guard of women reformers, but she is not a crank that 
turns in one direction until the monotony becomes unbearable. She has zeal with knowledge, and this with sound 
common sense, tact and a harmonious individuality gives her success. Another strong point is her talent for organi- 
zation, and as her methods run in reasonable lines she rarely fails in the accomplishment of her object." Should a 
Royal Order be instituted for the decoration of Colonial women, Lady Tilley's varied public services would be well 
worthy of recognition. Residence: Carleton House, St. John, V.fi.

Catharine Parr, the fifth in order of birth of the clever Strickland sisters, was born at 
London, Kent, England, January gth, 1802. She was the first of the sisters to commence 
writing, and it was the favour with which her stories and sketches were received by the 
public that led her elder sisters to enter the same field. In 1832 she married Lieut. 
Thomas Traill, of the 2ist Fusiliers, with whom she emigrated to Canada, her sister, 
Susannah (Mrs. Moodie, q.i'.}, following soon afterward. The Traills settled at Rice 
Lake, in Ontario, which became their permanent place of residence in this country. 
From there Mrs. Traill continued to contribute to the English magazines. In 1835 she 
published her first book : " The Backwoods of Canada." Among her subsequent works, 
all of which had a marked influence in promoting emigration to Canada, were : " The 
Canadian Crusoes," " The Female Emigrant's Guide," " Rambles in the Canadian 
Forest," " Studies in Plant Life in Canada," " Pearls and Pebbles," and " Cot and Cradle 
Stories." She died at her residence, "Westove," Lakefield, Ont., August 28th, 1899, 
universally regretted. Not long before her death, through the instrumentality of Lord 
Lansdowne, she received a grant from the Royal Bounty Fund, which was supplemented 
by a subscription from her friends in Canada, headed by Sir Sandford Fleming. John 
Reade, speaking of Mrs. Traill in " Old and New," says : " No one knew her who did 
not love her. Those who knew nothing of her literary fame, loved her for her Christian 
love and charity. All children loved her. It was not uncommon for grey-headed men 
and women to say : ' I have known and loved her all my life.' Her one boast (if boast 
it could be called), was : ' I have never lost a friend.' " At her death she was said to be 
the oldest living authoress in the British Dominions.

. MRS. LILLIAN MASSEY TREBLE. 

From a photograph by Park Brothers, Toronto. 

Mrs. Treble is the only daughter of the late Hart A. Massey, Esquire, of Toronto, a gentleman widely known 
n Canada as the able and energetic founder of some of its most important industries and philanthropic institutions. 
She was born in Newcastle, Ont., March znd, 1854. She has inherited a large share of her father's energy and 
ability, and her natural gifts have been perfected by the most thorough education and culture which the country 
could afford, completed by wide experience of the best social life and foreign travel. The heiress of large estates, 
she has made philanthropic work the ambition of her life. Commencing with the Fred Victor Mission in a neglected 
part of Toronto, and with the Deaconess work, she speedily appreciated the fact that, if permanent good was to be 
accomplished, the home-life of the masses must be improved, and for this purpose the girls must be furnished with 
higher ideals than could be had in their own wretched tenements. Hence came classes in Domestic Science connected 
with the Mission work. These led up to wider ideas for the uplifting of the home life of the whole country, calling 
for teachers for our Public and High Schools, and supplying these through a Normal Training School. This led to 
the founding of the Lillian Massey School of Household Science and Art. Finally the influence of her work has 
reached the University of Toronto, resulting in a curriculum in Household Science which offers the most perfect 
literary, scientific and practical education for women in woman's sphere of life, i.e., the home, that can be found in 
any country. Mrs. Treble has also founded similar work in the University of Manitoba, and in several ladies' 
colleges. She was married, January 26th, 1897, to John M. Treble, Esquire, of Toronto. A member of the Metro- 
politan Methodist Church, Toronto, a trustee of the Fred Victor Mission, Honorary President of the Canadian 
Household Economic Association, and Vice-President of the Women's Council of Toronto, she is likewise a trustee 
executrix for the administration of the large estate of her father, the late Hart A. Massey. Her name would add 
strength to any Royal Order to be instituted for the decoration of Colonial women. Residence : " Euclid Hall" 
Toronto.

of many warmly expressed messages of congratulation, and in addition were presented

LADY WENTWORTH. 

From the painting of her Ladyship by Sir J. S. Copley, R.A., now in the Lenox Library, New 
York. Copied, by permission of the directors of the Library, expressly for this work. 

Frances Deering Wentworth, a native of Boston, Mass., married, first, Theodore Atkinson, Junior, 

Esquire, Secretary of the Colony of New Hampshire, who died at Portsmouth, N. H., October 28th, 1769, 
aged ^3 ; and, secondly, two weeks afterwards, John Wentworth, Esquire, who had been appointed 
Governor and Commander-m-Chief of New Hampshire, July izth, 1766. To this office was added that 
of Surveyor-General of the King's Woods in North America. These positions he tilled till after the 
outbreak of the American Revolution, an event he seems to have done his utmost to prevent. His last 
official act was to prorogue the Assembly at the Isles of Shoals, August, 1775. He then sailed for 
England, and, on January 23rd, 1792, was appointed Lieutenant-Governor of Nova Scotia, Lady Went- 
worth accompanying him to Halifax. He continued in this position up to 1808, when he retired^ on a 
pension of ,6500. While Governor of Nova Scotia he raised the Nova Scotia Regiment, of which he 
became Colonel ; he was also Grand Master of the Free Masons. He and Lady Wentworth received as 
their guests both the Due d'Orleans (afterwards King Louis Philippe of France) and Prince Edward 
(afterwards the Duke of Kent), anil they loaned their lodge, at P.edford Basin, to the latter, who occupied 
it, with his morganatic wife, Madame de St. Laurent (?.7>.). Lady Wentworth was on friendly terms 
with both the Prince and Madame de St. Laurent. She (Lady W.) was presented at Court to the King 
and Queen, July sth, 1798, by the Countess of Fit/william, and was admired by Queen Charlotte for 
her elegance and manners, and received the appointment of a lady-in-waiting, with permission to reside 
abroad and receive a yearly salary of ,yxi. {.Murdoch.) She is represented as having been beautiful, 
accomplished and gay. Her name is preserved in New Hampshire in the towns of Francestown, Deering 
and Wentworth. Her Ladyship died at Sunning Hall, lieikshire, England, February Hth, 1813, aged 
68. Sir John Wentworth died at Halifax, N.S., April 8th, 1820, aged 84, and is buried in St. Paul's 
Church there, where a tablet exists to his memory. They left one son, Charles Mary Wentworth, who 
succeeded to the baronetcy. It was he who presented to Prince Edward the diamond star sent to His 
Royal Highness from Nova Scotia. Lady Wentworth's sister married George Brinley, Esquire, Com- 
missary and Storekeeper-General at Halifax. One of their daughters was Mrs. Moody, the mother of 
Mrs. Gore, the novelist, who, on the death of Sir C. M. Wentworth, in 1844, inherited the " Prince's 



Lodge " estate, at Halifax.

MRS. WHKELER. 

From a recent photograph. > 

Harriet, youngest and only surviving daughter of the late Andrew Shaw, Esquire, 
Master of the Trinity House, Montreal, is of Highland Scotch parentage, a direct descen- 
dant, on her mother's side, of the Grants of Dulreggan and Corrimony. She married, in 
1854, Dr. T. B. Wheeler, of New York, and had six children, only two of whom survive. 
Since her husband's death, January loth, 1901, she has resided wholly in Montreal, for 
whose charities she has done noble work, specially for the Ladies' Benevolent Society, of 
which she has been a manager for thirty-nine years, and a directress during five. Over 
$30,000 have been collected by her for this association. A wing to the Ladies' Benevo- 
lent Institution, for the building and furnishing of which she collected the funds, bears 
her name, by virtue of a resolution passed by the Society in 1880. Mrs. Wheeler 
organized the Montreal Society of Decorative Art in 1879, and served as its first presi- 
dent, H.R.H. the Princess Louise, who opened the rooms, becoming its first patroness. 
She is still an honorary President of that body. In 1880 she was elected Vice-President 
-of the Montreal Dramatic Club, which, under the artistic direction of the late Mrs. J. W. 
Buckland (?.?/.), raised funds for ten years in aid of various city charities. In 1885, 
during the rebellion in the North-West, she undertook to collect money to procure hos- 
pital supplies for the regiments then on active service, the balance of the moneys so 
subscribed and collected being devoted to the purchase of an outfit of underclothing, etc., 
for one hundred and fifty men of the Montreal Garrison Artillery. Her latest service 
was rendered, as a member of the Soldiers' Wives' League, in collecting numerous dona- 
tions for the troops going to South Africa, and money to minister to those they left at 
home. Generous and sympathetic by nature, Mrs. Wheeler is, also, a woman of strong 
individuality and wonderful energy. She counts her friends by thousands in every walk 
of life. Residence : 123 Metcalfe Street, Montreal.

LADY WHITEWAY. 

From a photograph by Parsons, St. John's, Nfld. Kindly furnished by Hon. Mr. Justice 
Davidson, Montreal. 

Catherine Anne, daughter of the late W. H. Davies, Esquire, of Pictou, 
N.S., married, as his second wife, October 22nd, 1872, the Hon. William 
Vallance Whiteway, Q.C., a distinguished colonial statesman, who was 
Premier of Newfoundland from 1878 to 1885, and again from 188910 1897, 
was created a K.C.M.G. in 1880, and was called to the Most Honourable Privy 
Council in 1897. Of this marriage there is issue three sons and three daughters. 
One daughter, Harriet Louise, married, June 2nd, 1897, Peers, eldest son of 
the Hon. Mr. Justice Davidson, Montreal. Lady Whiteway accompanied her 
husband to England in 1897, on the occasion of Queen Victoria's Diamond 
Jubilee, and while in London on that occasion had the honour of being pre- 
sented to Her Majesty and of being present with her husband at the Queen's 
State ball. Residence: " Rivcrvicw," Si. John's, Newfoundland.

MRS. E. STONE WIGGINS. 

Kioni a photograph taken specially for this work by Topley, Ottawa. 

Susie Anna Gunhilda, third daughter of the late Captain Vincent White Wiggins, 
of Lakeside House, Waterborough, N.B., and his wife, Charlotte Elizabeth, daughter of 
John Wiggins, Esquire, was born April 6th, 1846, and was educated by private" tuition. 
She is a fine Latin and Greek scholar, and has a perfect mastery of English. She 
married, in 1862, her cousin, E. Stone Wiggins, Esquire, who subsequently graduated as 
M.D., and became Principal of the Institution for the Education of the Blind at Brant- 
ford, Ont. He has also won celebrity in connection with his weather forecasts. Mrs. 
Wiggins herself achieved distinction in connection with the measure for the legalization 
of marriage with a deceased wife's sister, when it was under discussion in the Canadian 
Parliament, in the early eighties. Her letters on that occasion, written in answer to the 
objections of the late Archbishop Lewis, attracted widespread attention, and made the 
passage of the bill a certainty. " For felicity of expression, cogency of reasoning, 
fierceness of invective, keenness of satire and piquancy of style," wrote the late Nicholas 
Flood Davin, "nothing equal to them has appeared in the Canadian press for years." 
Not content with this service, however, "Gunhilda" went into the lobby of the Senate 
and fought a ten days' fight with four bishops of her own church (the Anglican), coming 
off the victor. On the day that the bill received its second reading in the Red Cham- 
ber, the Speaker (the late Sir David Macpherson) invited her to take a seat on his right, 
an honour, it is said, which was never before or has since been accorded to any woman 
but the wife of a Governor-General. "What reward," asks " Kit," in dwelling on this 
achievement, "did this brave and beautiful woman get for her undoubtedly great work? 
Alas ! We have a way of forgetting the bread that has been eaten. ... At all 
events, let us honour her, and glorify her, and remember her the lone woman, great, 
intellectual, marvellously well-read and cultured, a woman who in her day stirred 
Canada as few women have ever stirred her." It should be added that the Wiggins 
family claims descent from Capt. Thomas Wiggins, of Shrewsbury, England, who, in 
1630, became first Governor of New Hampshire. Residence: "Arbor House" 
Britannia Bay, Ottawa. 352 





MISS WOOD. 

From a photograph hy Otto, Paris. 

Miss Joanna E. Wood, the well-known Canadian novelist, was born in 
Lanark, Scotland, and came to Canada, with her parents, when a " wee lassie," 
their home being fixed in the neighbourhood of Niagara Falls. She first 
gained attention through her novel, "Judith Moore," although previous to the 
appearance of that book a number of clever short stories from her pen had 
appeared in American serials. "The Untempered Wind," produced in 1894, 
is, according to that prince of Canadian critics, George Murray, "a subtle 
analysis of village life, with at least two characters that may live in fiction." 
Her subsequent works embrace "The Lynchpin Sensation," "A Daughter of 
Witches" (first published in the Canadian Magazine), " Fardcn Ha'," and 
" Unto the Third Generation," all of which have been well received. Miss 
Wood travels much, and is even now away from home on a visit to England. 
Her portrait has been painted by Miss Sermonda liurrell, Lord Gwydyr's 
clever granddaughter. Residence : " The Heights? Queens/on, On/.

from the patronage extended by the best' people in

A Woman's Store 



- 




" The hand that rocks the cradle 
rules the world" 

PHE old saying expresses a truth 
which may be applied to the 
business world even more directly. 
Woman rules everywhere through- 
out civilization directly or indi- 
rectly, and nowhere are her wants, 
wishes and whims catered to more 
devotedly than in this big store. It is emphatically a woman's 
store, like it should be, since women have the most buying and 
providing to do, and the Richmond Street wing, where men's 
clothing is sold, is called The Mens' Store, to distinguish it for 
that very reason. The store as a whole is a Woman's store.

Missts Moote & High 



There are very few Canadian ladies en- 
gaged in professional work in Canada 
or elsewhere who have achieved the 
success that have Misses Moote & High, 
proprietors of the Graham Dermato- 
logical Institute, of Toronto, which was 
established in 1892. These ladies make 
a specialty of skin, scalp and complex- 
ional troubles, and thousands of women 
throughout Canada have had life made 
happier by the removal of some dis- 
figuring facial blemish, such as a growth 
of superfluous hair, ugly moles, a birth- 
mark, scars, etc., or a bad case of acne, 
eczema, or other skin affection. Grate- 
ful letters are daily received from ladies 
(and often from the sterner sex) through- 
out Canada saying what grand results 
have been obtained using their remedies. 
Face treatments, with massage, for re- 
juvenating the complexion, removing 
wrinkles and restoring the skin ; treat- 
ments for curing scalp troubles, falling 
hair, dandruff, grey hair, etc. Sham- 
pooing, manicuring, chiropody, etc., are 
other branches of the work. Descrip- 
tive literature sent on request by ad-
